Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark came back to Broadway last night, and nobody was hurt. Aside from a few technical glitches and one late entrance, the newly streamlined show ran relatively smoothly after its three-and-a-half week hiatus. The break was called in order to work out technical problems and streamline the plot after a lengthy and problematic run in previews. The revamped Spider-Man retained many of the same design, flying, and story elements created by the show's director, Julie Taymor, who was ousted in March. But it cut several songs and added a lot of new dialogue. It also significantly cut the role of the villain Arachne, and turned her into Spider-Man's guardian angel. Chris Tierney, an actor and stuntman who was seriously injured in a 30-foot fall in December, performed throughout the show.
