Is Spider-Man the Musical Up for a Windfall?

As Julie Taymor’s screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Tempests receives unflattering reviews from the USA Today and Rolling Stone, her other project, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, continues to be in the news despite not having opened yet.

For the past two months there have been negative reports about technical problems, a cast injury and forecast economic problems.

It’s a strange turn given that four months ago some major reviewers and the public, after Reeve Carney (Spider-man) performance in GMA, seemed to look forward to the debut after some skepticism with its high-budget and subject matter.

Then the preview was postponed from Nov. 14 to 28 and it’s been one thing after another:

  1. The two-hour performance became a three hours mess with the show stopping several times to fix a technical difficulty.
  2. Natalie Mendoza (Arachne) suffered a concussion after being struck by a rope while standing off stage during the preview.
  3. Economix blog pointed out that it would take “4 years before the show even begins to make up its initial investment”. And that’s if it can sell over 90 percent of the seats each week.

However, a few Broadway fan reviews suggest that the some audience members found the play entertaining despite its kinks.

And Reuters pointed out, Spider-man musical might still make billions as a global franchise like Taymor’s the Lion King. And with a well-known brand like Spider-man already established, it might just.
