At this rate, this show will NEVER open!
Although there haven't been any accidents as of late, the $65 million Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which has been in preview since November, has once again pushed back its opening night for the THIRD time!
Sources explain that the additional time will be employed for director Julie Taymor to 'fine-tune' the production, and instate a new ending.
Producer Michael Cohl explains in a statement:
"Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is ten-times more complicated to tech than anything else, and the preview schedule allows for only very limited rehearsal time (twelve 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."
With the kind of luck that these guys have had, we think it's pretty STOOPID for them to tempt fate by ensuring that this will be the final postponement!
Here's hoping that you're right, bb!
