Exclusive: 'Spider-Man' musical's new opening date set for Feb. 7
The unconfirmed reports that big-budget Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will push back its opening night are indeed true, and EW has exclusively learned that the new opening night is now set for Feb. 7. “The creative team is implementing truly exciting changes throughout the preview process,” said producer Michael Cohl. “Due to some unforeseeable setbacks, most notably the injury of a principal cast member, it has become clear that we need to give the team more time to fully execute their vision. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark isan extremely ambitious undertaking, as everyone knows, and I have no intention of cutting a single corner in getting to the finish line.” The much-delayed show, which has been in previews since Nov. 18, had most recently been slated to open Jan. 11.
