Broadway’s ‘Spider-Man’ Musical Earns a New Record

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK (AP) — Look who’s got a big smile behind his mask on Broadway — none other than the once-mocked Spider-Man.

The Broadway League reported Tuesday that “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” took in a whopping $2,941,794 last week, making it the weekly all-time top Broadway earning show.

That shatters the old record held by “Wicked,” which last January recorded the then-highest one-week take on Broadway with a $2.2 million haul, though over eight-shows. The numbers are not adjusted for inflation. Last week, “Wicked” took in $2,712,535 over nine shows.

The stunt-heavy Spider-Man show, which at $75 million makes it the costliest ever on Broadway, muscled to the top despite a turbulent history, including injuries to actors, delays in opening night, poor reviews and a record-breaking preview period.
