Bono and The Edge were on hand tonight in New York City along with director Philip Wm. McKinley  as Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark celebrated its 1,000th performance. That’s an impressive accomplishment for a production that was roundly panned by critics before it formally opened, and suffered through numerous problems and delays during development.   After McKinley came in as director the production went on to earn the top one week box office record of almost three million dollars.

Spidey continues to be one of the top shows on Broadway.  The show’s success has producers Michael Cohl and Jere Harris now planning to trun it into an arena production that could play in Las Vegas, Hamburg (Germany) and other cities.
