"Spider-Man" broadway sales up despite bad reviews

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Despite an onslaught of bad reviews -- The Hollywood Reporter called it “chaotic, dull and a little silly” -- “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” enjoyed strong tickets sales on Broadway last week.

The ill-starred $65 million musical grossed $1,330,014, an increase of almost 3 percent over the previous week, reported the New York Times.

It still took a back seat to “Wicked,” which grossed $1.44 million for the same number of performances as Spider-Man.

“Spider-Man” producers have been asking audiences to participate in focus groups to help identify problems before its long-delayed official March 15 opening.
