As if this weren’t the biggest foregone conclusion in the universe, that doomed Spider-Man musical with all the accidents and faulty equipment and crew injuries can now add “and the show officially sucks” to the list. Â Producers have delayed the opening of the show again and again, but critics finally got fed up and decided to treat February 7th, the originally announced opening date, as the real opening, and have based their reviews on that night’s performance.
As you can imagine, the reviews were not favorable. Â Producers are furious that the show has been judged based on what it calls “previews,” and that changes are still being made to the set and the performance. Â Regardless, there are claims that ticket sales are still strong, though that may not continue for much longer.
