Spider-Man's Road To Broadway Is Paved In Gold

The Bono and The Edge scored web-slinging musical is now the most expensive musical of its time. Rumors are circulating that the Spider-Man Musical is going to cost up to $40 million to create. At that rate, it would take the Julie Taymor extravaganza 8,000 years in a Broadway theater to break even. Most of the funds are being spent on designers, costumes and choreographed fight scenes. Crap, how much are tickets going to cost? [Monsters And Critics]



Is the 8,000 years a joke?

It could break even in a few years.

But I'm not sure Spider-man is something that will draw Lion King size audiences. Or any audience really.

Good luck, Julie.
