At least she is being honest ...

"It's like Formula One. You want to see the car crash. . . We like to go to Rockefeller Center to watch the ice-skaters fall."

-- Carol Barbeiro, recent audience member for a preview of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," explaining to The New Yorker why she was eager to see the seemingly accursed Broadway musical. At least four actors have been injured onstage since October -- and ticket sales have soared.

Ice Charades, for the record, would like to see the play with or without the "car crash", thank you very much.
