Wow. Must be serious if they had to cancel a performance last-minute.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I heard the stage manager caught Reeve Carney playing a game of bobble head with one of the male ensemble members and the show had to be cancelled because Reeve has locked himself in his dressing room closet and won't come out (pun intended).

If you don't have facts, then don't post rumors.

Where did you see this on Twitter? I tried searching for tweets and found nothing.

I hope no one was hurt.

Maybe people should find out the facts first before they start cracking jokes.

Don't they do stunt rehearsal right before the show? Something going wrong then would explain the late cancellation.

It's more likely than not a technical malfunction. You can't run a show like that if one of the automation systems goes down or something.

The automation system went down in rehearsals today. A computer malfunction. They are working to restore full automation for tomorrow's performances.

Well on the bright side, at least the people who get didn't see the show tonight didn't have to see the show tonight.

Makes me want to sit on a dimly lit fire escape and croon a soporific ballad.

You should attach a few dozen really thick wires to you that make it obvious you're attached to them and jump around for a while after singing that song and then charge people $150 to watch you do that.

Just to be clear, you're using "song" euphemistically, right?

Oh yea. U2 recently announced they're working on a new album and their old fans replied, "That's okay. We're all set. Thanks just the same."

Hey man, I'm a fan of U2.

Just remember, half the band had the good taste not to be involved with this show in any way.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Yea. They should just break up now. There's no way to come back from "No Songs on the Horizon" ("Fez"?) or the two "ethical" members of the band stabbing Julie Taymor in the back.

They're already not doing too hot this summer. Having to cancel a show won't help them in any way. I saw it once. Liked it and I'm glad I saw it, but I wouldn't pay to see it on Broadway again.

It seems odd to me that it isn't on any of the official SPIDER-MAN social media. Plus it's f*cked that my original post calling bullsh!t was deleted.

Someone needs to tweet back to Elizabeth Boone. I want to slap her. A show would not just cancel for the heck of it. I can understand the disappointment, but producers were anything but unprofessional to cancel the show if there was a safety concern.

^ Agreed. The hashtag "unprofessional" is uncalled for... unprofessional would be allowing the show to go on when there is a safety concern.
