An end to a era, but hopefully the next chapter will be better than the last.
It's been a grueling few months for the cast, crew and creators of Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark. The $65 million musical has found most of its cast in the hospital, its director without a job and its reviews scathing to say the least. With time not on their side, producers have planned a major overhaul of the "historic" show creatively and are hoping to get it back on its feet next month.
So this weekend, the original version of the show, imagined by director Julie Taymor and her team, will take its final
bow swing. After that, the show will go on a three-week hiatus to implement all the new changes.
We're sure this is for the best, but then again, what other choice do they have really? Hopefully, whatever producers have up their sleeve will be profitable to them and still enticing for audiences.
Good luck with that!
