DecemberNitro: *falls off stage, dies*
Rude Turnip: Has anyone seen it? Should I go see this on Broadway before it closes?
Lord Dimwit: DecemberNitro: *falls off stage, dies*I was volunteering with a children's (7-14) community theatre company years ago. One of the kids was just a little shiat, you know? Always acting out for attention, always cracking "jokes" that weren't funny - he'd intentionally flub his lines during audition and "accidentally" say "booger" or something.Anyway, one of the rules there was that every kid gets some sort of part in the show. We were doing...I think it was Into the Woods. Anyway, there was a cow. This kid, not surprisingly, became the back end of a cow.The show was put on in an actual theatre, with a stage and a (small) orchestra pit.On opening night, the cow comes on and wanders around stage. The little shiat kid, whose only job was to follow the other kid around while under a sheet and stand still when the cow stands still, starts farking around. While the cow is standing still at one point, he starts kinda dancing, stomping his feet, visibly picking his nose under the sheet, that sort of thing.Finally, this ends with him wandering off a bit and falling off the damn stage into the orchestra pit, pulling the cow costume off of the other kid. We had to stop production, go fish him out of the orchestra pit (he was unhurt, but he acted like he'd broken every bone in his body). We asked him to not return.That's how I felt when I read about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
peterquince: I actually saw the show a couple months ago. It wasn't ... any worse than "Bring It On: the Musical" rabid wombats gnawing on my vas deferens or "Ghost: The Musical"
peterquince: I'm a bit surprised they lasted this long. But apparently they're retooling it into an arena tour, like the batman one that went around (or is going around?). And assuming they can get the running costs down (non-union tour will cut costs quite a bit), it could be really popular. I also suspect that they'll end up licensing the flight technology they developed to other theaters and the investors/producers will make quite a bit from that.
