article imageDelayed opening for Spider-Man Broadway musical

The new musical featuring comic-book superhero Spider-Man has had its opening night postponed after difficulties with the production.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will now open on February 7, a month later than originally planned.
Playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man is relative newcomer Reeve Carney.
New York previews for the $65 million (£42 million) production were deemed a flop after several things went wrong. An actor was left on a wire above the audience for almost ten minutes due to a malfunctioning wire.
And Carney himself was caught in a harness at one point.
The lead producer, Michael Cohl, said in a statement: “It has become clear that we need to give the team more time to fully execute their vision.”
The BBC says of the musical: “The show has been beset with problems, including a lead actor getting injured during a preview show.
Spider goddess
“Natalie Mendoza, who plays ‘spider goddess’ Arachne, was hit in the head by a rope and suffered a concussion during the first performance on 28 November.”
Cohl’s statement continued: “I have no intention of cutting a single corner in getting to the finish line.”
Spider-Man – a Marvel comic-book character – is the alter ego of Peter Parker, who gained superpowers after being bitten by a spider during an experiment. More familiar in the role will be Tobey McGuire, who has so far appeared as Parker/Spider-Man in three movies.
He has also vocally reprised his role in the videogame adaptations of the movies.
