After being plagued with numerous re-writes, cast injuries & technical difficulties since its previews in November, The Spider-Man musical, entitled Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, finally opened on Boadway last night.

Sadly the show was harshly received by critics, with The Hollywood Reporter calling it a "bloated monster", The New York Times branding it "a bore", and Entertainment Weekly hammering the final nail by blasting the score (composed by U2's Bono & The Edge) as "a mostly lackluster collection of forgettable tunes that play like B-sides". Ouch.
