U2's Spider-Man Musical Makes Broadway History

(Gibson) Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark the drama-packed musical toting a score from U2's Bono and The Edge has broken Broadway records to score the title of the highest single-week grossing show of all time.

The Daily Telegraph reports the production took in roughly $3 million over a nine-show period, which breaks the previous single-week grossing record held by the Wizard of Oz-inspired musical Wicked, which grossed $2.2 million over eight shows in 2011.

First impressions are often deceiving, and that's the case with Spider-Man. The production, which is reportedly the priciest show in history with a projected cost of $70 million, was faced with a number of early hindrances, including serious injuries to cast members, economic problems and poor reviews. more on this story
