    Default Has anyone actually seen the Broadway show?

    Anyone actually seen Turn off the Dark in NYC?

    Nick Fury saw it. That's how he lost the eye. True story.

    So what did you think about it?

    I saw it last Thanksgiving. Honestly, I was impressed by the quality of the production. I didn't know Broadway shows were that elaborate. It even had special effects. Story wise it's nothing new or worthy. It really shinned at the end when Spidey and Goblin had a mid-air fight. To see Spidey battling the Green Goblin live with no CGI was priceless. Well, more like $100. I think it should be one of those once in a lifetime thing true Spidey fans should do.

    LMAO! Was there really that kind of problems with it?

    I have not read a positive review of this thing. Sad, really. Spidey could work on stage, especially with U2 penned songs. A Batman musical would be possibly even more awesome, though.

    I took my girlfriend to it for our anniversary one year.

    We don't speak of that anniversary. *shudders*

    I saw it for my birthday. The music is horrible. The song lyrics are horrible. The story is horrible. Swiss Miss, or whatever her name is, is horrible. Spider-Man swinging around in front of you was awesome. Not worth seeing.

    Batman musical just makes me think of that one episode of Batman Beyond.

    A lot of the performers got hurt (especially before the show opened). Not sure if anything happened to an audience member.

    Especially whoever would be playing Spider-Man. The Simpsons even made fun of that in one of their episodes.

    It almost happened (late 90s-early 00s), in fact if you look hard enough online you can find files of the spec songs. I remember some were written by Jim Steinman.

    Allow me to be clear: IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AWESOME!

    Hillariously bad, though.

    Here's a handy link to a site with some details: http://www.freewebs.com/batman_themusical/home.htm

    Enjoy.

    Okay, but not great. I was paying more attention to adaptation choices than anything else, but it wasn't aggressively bad.
