Spider-manBroadway's much-maligned Spider-Man musical closed out 2012 in style by setting new box office records for New York theater.

The spectacular, which opened to scathing reviews last year following multiple delays and safety issues, grabbed the record for the highest single-week gross of any show in Broadway history on Tuesday thanks to post-Christmas ticket sales of over $2.9 million.

The previous record holder, Wicked, took in $2.2 million a year ago and ironically The Wizard Of Oz spin-off had another huge end to the year, raking in over $2.7 million from nine shows last week.

Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark is Broadway's costliest production ever.
