Spider-Man: Turn of the Dark Experiences Technical Difficulties


BBC News is reporting that technical difficulties with production of the premiere performance of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark musical caused lead actor Reeve Carney and actress Natalie Mendoza to end up dangling in mid-air over the crowd, as flying stunts went wrong.

The New York Times said the $65m show was stopped five times and ran for more than three hours.

The New York Times said the audience was reduced to laughter after Carney was left dangling yards above them while backstage staff tried to grab his foot to pull him down.

The New York Post, meanwhile, called it an “epic flop”, saying the show’s “hi-tech gadgetry went completely awry amid a dull score and baffling script”.
