Yet another Spiderman delay

Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark

Hey, how about yet another delay for the official opening of this here Spiderman musical, with music by Bono and The Edge of U2? Another one you ask, surely that’s not possible? Oh yes it is.

The much, much delayed opening of ‘Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark’ was pushed back yet again last week, making you wonder if this stage show will ever actually officially open, despite it being generally well received (by audiences at least, and some critics) since opening for previews last year. Producers say the latest delays are to enable further “fine-tuning” of the hi-tech production, as well as the introduction of a new ending. It’s also thought that some new staging and possibly even some new music will be added to the show, already the most expensive in Broadway history.

One of the show’s lead producers, Michael Cohl, said that the latest delay would be the last delay. This means the Spiderman show should properly open on 15 Mar.
