With Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark dominating the Broadway theatre press like no other show in decades, 2011 was an interesting year in the Big Apple. Spidey took many awards, none of them official.

Patrick Healy from The New York Times takes a behind the scenes look at some of the ups and downs of the year that was.
