'Spider-Man' Opening Delayed Again Until March 15
Troubled Broadway production moves from Feb. 7 in third high-profile postponement.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been delayed once again.
The troubled Broadway production now has plans to open March 15, more than a month later than the rescheduled opening date of Feb. 7, lead producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah Harris announced Thursday.
It is the third delay in the opening of the production. The original opening night was meant to be Dec. 21, and then that got pushed to Jan. 11.
A release from the company said the delay would allow producers to "fine-tune aspects of the show."
The producers further announced that the scheduled performances on Tuesday, Jan. 18, and Tuesday, Jan. 25, have been cancelled to allow more rehearsal time. All ticketholders for those performances will be offered refunds or exchanges. All other preview performances will go on as scheduled.
Cohl said in a statement: “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is 10 times more complicated to tech than anything else, and the preview schedule allows for only very limited rehearsal time (12 hours per week). We simply need more time to fully execute the creative team’s vision before freezing the show. I picked a date in March that allows me to ensure that this will be the final postponement.”
