Worst Marquee on Broadway

Not only is "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" the most beleaguered and probably worst show on Broadway, it has the poorest marquee.

Right before "Spider-Man" moved into the former Ford Center for the Arts/Hilton Theatre, the house's ownership changed and it became the Foxwoods Theatre. Here's the marquee Foxwoods came up with. What bulbs there are are small, and a good number of them are burnt out. And "Foxwoods" doesn't even light up! The sign barely registers on the retina, so dim a glow does it cast in the Times Square night. The marquee on the 42nd Street side of the theatre is even smaller and more pathetic.
