After more than three controversial years on Broadway, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark will finally close on January 4, 2014. The Spidey spectacle will transfer to Las Vegas with details on the upcoming production to be announced soon.
Nearly 2 million audience members have seen the Broadway show; and when it closes, it will have played 1,268 performances and earned around $200 million.
Producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris released this comment:
“Our years on Broadway have afforded us the opportunity to build an internationally recognized brand, and Las Vegas, with its year-round stream of tourists seeking the world’s best entertainment, is the natural home for this next incarnation. To prepare for the Las Vegas production, we have tasked the creative team to push the boundaries even further, taking the same story and making it sleeker, bolder, and more spectacular than ever.”
And hopefully safer.
