(NEW YORK) – The most expensive musical in Broadway history made a far from perfect debut Sunday, adding to fears that the show may have trouble making the $1 million a week it needs just to break even.
The first performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the much-anticipated $65-million musical, had its fair share of glitches, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
After starting nearly 30 minutes late, fans who were anxious to see the show's highly touted cutting-edge effects watched on as the action stopped several times, sometimes leaving actors suspended in midair.
The show, which nearly doubled the cost of the second-most expensive Broadway production, Shrek: The Musical, would have to take in at least $1 million each week for two to three years to break even.
