“Spider-Man” Broadway production delayed until 2011
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This may come as a shock to you, but the Broadway-bound “Spider-Man” has run into more complications.
Now concerns over the stage show’s flying stunts (and the safety of its performers) has forced producers to delay the opening until 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show, which was scheduled to begin previews next Sunday, Nov. 14, will now open Jan. 11, 2011.
“Shows like ours, that embrace the challenge of opening on Broadway without an out-of-town tryout, often need to adjust their schedules along the way,” said producer Michael Cohl.
This stems from an incident weeks ago when one of the actors in the production fell from a great height during a flying sequence and broke both of his wrists.
“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” will be directed by Julie Taymor and features music by Bono and The Edge of U2 fame. If it ever actually opens.
