Spider-Man gets tangled. A play based on the popular comic is on track to be the most expensive musical of all time. Why are they covering theater? Because the play was a technical nightmare. Mishaps and an hour long intermission resulted in an audience jeer that the Lion King director's production was not ready for showtime. Speaking of booing, Lebron's reception in Cleveland may be less than warm. And researchers figure out what the most boring day of the century was. Today certainly isn't the most boring day ever, because Brendan Francis Newnam and Ricco Gagliano from the Dinner Party Download join Madeleine for our weekly look at what's going on in the zeitgeist.
