The scheduled March 15 opening of Broadway’s problem-plagued Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been delayed for approximately three months, reports the New York Times, which cites anonymous sources who work on the production. The break will allow producers to implement a planned overhaul of the $65 million musical.
A new opening night date has not yet been announced, and Spider-Man‘s producers are expected to reveal the exact dates of the show’s interruption later this week.
Tuesday’s report follows months of setbacks on the production due to technical glitches and actor injuries (actress Natalie Mendoza received a concussion after being struck in the head by equipment backstage, and a flying performer broke both his wrists while rehearsing).
Also this week, it was reported that the show’s producers were in talks with director Julie Taymor about making big changes to the troubled production that could include her departure.
