One more delay for Spiderman musical

By | Published on Monday 20 December 2010

Producers of the Bono-and-The-Edge-scored musical ‘Spiderman Turn Off The Dark’ have confirmed that they are again postponing the official launch of their rather ambitious and very expensive Broadway stage show.

As previously reported, the Spiderman musical has been hindered by all sorts of problems and delays, and those problems have continued even though the show is now previewing to the public at New York’s Foxwoods Theatre. The original (well, most recent) plan was for the show to formally open on 11 Jan, but it was confirmed last week that the production will now stay in ‘preview’ until 7 Feb.

Co-producer Michael Cohl told reporters: “The creative team is implementing truly exciting changes throughout the preview process. Due to some unforeseeable setbacks, most notably the injury of a principal cast member, it has become clear that we need to give the team more time to fully execute their vision. ‘Spiderman Turn Off The Dark’ is an extremely ambitious undertaking, as everyone knows, and I have no intention of cutting a single corner in getting to the finish line”.
