Early review of Broadway Spider-Man: “Disjointed”

Washington Post Staff Writer Peter Marks offers a stinging review of the “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” broadway musical.

The 8-year-old boys in the audience might be able to key on the Cirque du Soleil-style stunts on wires and video-game graphic elements, and probably not worry too much that “Spider-Man” is a tangle of disjointed concepts, scenes and musical sequences that suggests its more appropriate home would be off a highway in Orlando. Come to think of it, the optimal audience might be non-English-speaking.

The public opening has been pushed back, yet again, to March 15.

All this bad press makes me want to see the train wreck.

I agree. I really want to see if it’s as horrendous as I’ve been hearing.
