'Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark' Celebrates One Year

SpiderEveryone thought “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” would be dead after two shakes of a lambs tail. Yet here it is, a year later, still earning its Broadway keep.

At $75 million, “Spider-Man” is the most expensive Broadway production in history (most musicals on the Great White Way only cost between $5 million and $15 million). And, in celebration of its one-year anniversary, "Spider-Man" producers told The New York Times, they’re going to try something new: adding new scenes and maybe even a musical number to “Spider-Man” every year, to make it very similar to a new comic book.  This would all be in an effort to keep fans buying tickets and encouraging them to keep coming back for more.

The producers also plan on expanding their radio campaign to all 50 states as well as trying for overseas licensing. Looks like “Spider-Man” isn’t going down without a fight.
