It's King Kong vs. Spider-Man On Broadway
The New York Times' Patrick Healy reports that the mammoth Australian musical King Kong has its eye on NYC's Foxwoods Theater, but there's just one problem.
Another scary creature, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, happens to be inhabiting that very place and even a large can of Raid couldn't get it to leave; the show is still racking up very good numbers, despite the reviews and lack of Tony awards love.
That particular theater is essential to both shows because it's huge and they're the kinds of spectacles that require wide open spaces.
But sorry, Kong.
Spidey has spread his web over the place and he ain't budging.
At least not until I send in a whole bunch of other creatures that will have everyone running out in horror (and with serious allergic reactions yet).
Yes, I'm planning to do Cats.
