Spider Man The Musical ReviewsComic News — By Geeker on February 8, 2011 11:53 pm
I was so excited when Spider Man went to Broadway and it seems the critics like it as much as I thought I would. Spiderman Turn off the Dark it seems is awesome if you watch it in the dark. Anyone catch the heavy saracasm? Well shoot son you should have. Heres what critics are saying about this $65million fantastic vogage!
Los Angeles Times:
The investors of Spider-Man have inadvertently bankrolled an artistic form of megalomania. The book, by Taymor and Glen Berger, is an absolute farrago, setting up layers and subplots before the main narrative line has been established.”
New York Times:
……Spider-Man is not only the most expensive musical ever to hit Broadway; it may also rank among the worst.”
New York Post:
“[It's] equal parts exciting and atrocious…constantly seesawing between the galvanizing and the lame. .”
The Hollywood Reporter:
“The big shock when sitting down finally to assess this $65 million web-slinging folly, is what a monumental anti-climax it turns out to be….. And there’s nothing here half as catchy as the 1967 ABC cartoon theme tune.”
So who wants to go see it with me this weekend?
