    INITIAL REACTION

    I am not familiar with the musical but based on the film version it seems to lack memorable songsβ€”except for "I See Stars."

    My barometer: it is a good musical if I find myself humming the songs after watching it.

    AuliΚ»i Cravalho and Jaquel Spivey though are superb as Janis and Damian.

    Bonkers but I hope it committed more to whatever batshit insanity it was going for.

    I think there are enough Twitter threads posted about how incredulous it is that I do not need to pile on.

    (I'm picking giving birth inside a Peruvian cave surrounded by superpowered spider men as the craziest scene in the entire film.)

    (I changed my mind.)

    (I choose giving birth to Peter Parker without mentioning his name or almost mentioning his name.)

    (That's the one.)
