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!

We never thought we'd see the day!
Julie Taymor's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is scheduled to begin rehearsals on August 16.
Rehearsals for choreography and aerial flying lessons began on Monday for some cast members and Reeve Carney, who is playing Peter Parker, Tweeted:
“Wow, man, I can’t wait for the world to see this thing… It’s finally happening!!”
“I honestly can’t believe I’m getting paid to do things my mom would have killed me for when I was a kid! Ha!”
Performance dates are expected to be released soon with previews rumored to start in November at the Hilton Theater.
We're still not sure about this whole thing.
Do U want to see this show actually materialize?
