Broadway Review: Spider-Man (Turn Off The Dark)
This is how I felt :(. A lot of :( . I guess I had low expectations from the very beginning because all I could hope for was that someone would fall and break a neck! Now, that's horrible, even more horrible because I wasn't the only one who thought it and talked about it. I went with a small group of people and that's all anyone could talk about 0:).
The opening music was exotic and I thought "Oh this might be really good." But that was it! Rather unfortunate, too! The opening performance is very different from the remainder of the scenes. I suppose the stage is a bit too "contemporary" for me. I was yawning tears before the first Act was over, and couldn't wait to fly out of my chair after the final act. All in all, the story was nothing exciting and the music was not too awful, but it was just so weird to see Spiderman singing——it didn't feel right. It felt like "boo-hoo Spider-Man, boo-hoo!"
Perhaps I don't get it because I am not exactly a Spider-Man kindda girl. I'm more Batman, Superman-ish. But please don't bring them on Broadway unless you can find a way to do it properly. Please! For the sake of my sanity (I'm pleading as if someone would be forcing me to go see anything!) Ah, do forgive me cast of Spider-Man, and you too McKinley; I know you made great efforts, it just didn't workout with me, but then what do I know right?! :)
