So as I am sure you have heard the new $65 million “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark” resumed previews after its fourth major accident occurred. It has been reported that more safety measures have been put in place. Well that is good, I am glad after four people were injured, they finally put better safety measures in. And the show hasn’t even opened yet!
I can’t help but wonder why do we need so many stunts and special effects in musicals? It all started with that darn chandelier in “Phantom of the Opera.” Was that beautiful music and story line not entertaining enough that they had to add a huge chandelier coming out into the audience and crashing down?
