“Spider-Man” Broadway debut delayed … again
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” will postpone its planned Broadway opening, pushing the date back nearly a month.
This is just the latest in a long line of hiccups plaguing the stage production, whose obstacles have included serious injuries to major cast members.
“We simply need more time to fully execute the creative team’s vision before freezing the show,” lead producer Michael Cohl said in a statement picked up by the Wall Street Journal. “I picked a date in March that allows me to ensure that this will be the final postponement.”
The show now believes it will open on March 15. We’ll believe that when we see it. This is the fifth postponement, WSJ reports, adding that the creative team wants to work on a new ending for the show and tighten up the second act, which preview audiences have found “confusing.”
