For many Broadway shows, there's no better place than Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to show millions of Americans what you've got through the television exposure on NBC, let alone the estimated 3.5 million who line New York City streets.
Yet, this Sunday, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will reach tens of millions via TV's venerable "60 Minutes" news magazine (see video above). It's all too much of a rarity for "60 Minutes" to focus on Broadway. So kudos to CBS for focusing on at least one of the Great White Way's newsworthy musicals.
For the millions of football fans who stay tuned to CBS, they'll get an inside look at the musical that's still causing headlines and headaches for the beleaguered, delayed $60 million production. Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is supposed to start previews on the very same day as the broadcast: November 28.
Will you be turning on The Dark?
