Despite several delays in the first preview of Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark, the $65 million production will continue as planned.

On its Sunday preview, the show ran over three-and-a-half hours and stopped at least five times times as actors were left dangling from cables when their flying tricks failed.

"There will be no delays in performance schedule," said a spokesman for the show. "Previews will continue as planned. The cast and crew were thrilled to play the show in front of their first audience last night."

But the entire audience wasn't thrilled!

One woman reportedly yelled, "I don’t know how everyone else feels, but I feel like a guinea pig today — I feel like it’s a dress rehearsal."

Ha. The rest of the audience booed her.

Let's hope they have patient crowds the rest of the week!

    This will be a $65 million dollar turkey.
    Those investors are gonna lose it all.
    Who launches a blockbuster B'way show in the middle of a steep recession?
    I guess nothing was learned from the Madoff Affair.

    Bono from U2 should have never salvaged this project… in this economy he'll be lucky to recoup even half of what he and his friends invested..

    I watched the 60 Minutes piece on this show and I can not believe that they were going ahead with this project…the cost, the concept, the music…such garbage. Seriously, is it 2001? Another article today said the ticket for last nights show was $117. Who the HELL is going to pay that in today's economy for a show based on a movie from 10 years ago?? I hope this fails miserably.

    Why should we only go to NY for that. People live everywhere and enjoy all kinds of entertainment thru other mediums, it needs to be available to all audiences for that cost. The theatre is great, you do not need all that tech BS for a live performance, you need a stage, a GOOD story and actors.
