“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” which is the most expensive production in Broadway history at $65 million, could take at least four years to recoup its initial investment, according to the New York Times. The paper estimates that after the expenses of running the show, which could run about $1 million weekly, and royalty payments, the musical could clear a little over $300,000 in profit per week. At such an amount, the show would need to run for more than 200 weeks to break even; that estimate is based on the 1,932-seat Foxwoods Theatre selling 96 percent of its tickets.
