'Spider-Man' musical finally sets opening
Previews begin Nov. 14; officially opens Dec. 21
The new "Spider-Man" musical on Broadway has finally set its opening date.
Previews for "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" will begin Nov. 14 and officially opens Dec. 21 at Foxwoods Theatre.
The musical, directed by "Across the Universe's" Julie Taymor and spotlighting music by U2's Bono and the Edge, was originally set to open in February, but costs kept rising causing its debut to be postponed. It is said to be the priciest Broadway production ever.
Cast members were to include Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming, but will instead feature theater vets as the lead characters.
Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano ("Next to Normal") takes over for Wood as Mary Jane, while Patrick Page takes the reins as the Green Goblin, previously Cumming's role.
It was announced in November that Reeve Carney would play Peter Parker.
