The critics have had a field day flailing the new Spider-man play on Broadway. I tried to do a word cloud of the ten nastiest reviews, but that didn’t really get the savagery across. As another stab at it, here is an OS X auto-summary of the 5,844 words in those reviews:
It’s my understanding that was trying to create a sense of the jokey-jokey comic book aesthetic with things like cardboard cut-outs and a tiny doll that flies up the length of the stage during a climactic falling moment, but it just comes off as a huge middle-finger to the people who, again, paid hundreds of dollars to take their families to the show.
Hey, that’s pretty good.
