“Spider-Man” musical delayed … again?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: What a colossal disaster. The oft-maligned, frequently delayed Broad musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” has been delayed once again – this time until June – to completely overhaul a show that isn’t working, isn’t going to work, and should just be turned off.

Producers of Julie Taymor’s show “are planning a significant overhaul of the $65 million Broadway musical that would involve shutting down performances for two to three weeks, as well as delaying its scheduled opening on March 15 for about three months,” the NY Times reports.

Sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity say the shut down should cover late April and early May, but an official announcement regarding the next in a series of delays has not been made and might arrive later this week.

“An official start in June would be the sixth delay to the opening of ‘Spider-Man’ in the show’s long history, which began in 2002, when Marvel Entertainment reached out to the Broadway producer Tony Adams (‘Victor/Victoria’) about developing a musical,” Patrick Healy writes. “The endeavor has survived Mr. Adams’s death in 2005, a near-bankruptcy in 2009 and a number of technical challenges involving its aerial stunts, which contributed to injuries involving four performers during the fall and winter and led to several findings of state and federal safety code violations.”

But how much longer can it survive? How much longer should it survive? The show is on life support. It’s time to pull the plug on this debacle and let it fade into obscurity.
