George Santos, a 2021 Congressional candidate, recently added Broadway producer to the long list of his fabrications. According to people familiar with the discussions, Santos attempted to deceive potential donors by claiming he was a producer on the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. This show, which ran from 2011 to 2014, was a notoriously ill-fated production that suffered from technical mishaps, actor injuries, and ultimately lost tens of millions of dollars.
