Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the long-delayed musical that was scheduled to open on Broadway on Jan. 11, has pushed its opening date back to sometime in February, reports The New York Times. Since it began preview performances earlier this month, the $65 million show — directed by Julie Taymor with songs by U2’s Bono and the Edge — has been plagued by problems, including cast injuries and technical malfunctions. According to the Times, the current delay will be used to produce a new final number, rewrite dialogue, and potentially add new music. A rep for the show declined to comment on the report.
