David Ng has big news over at our sister blog Culture Monster. Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man finally is coming to Broadway…
Is this for real? After delays and numerous rumors of shutdowns and financial problems, Broadway’s new “Spider-Man” musical has announced a new official opening date in December.
The production, directed by Julie Taymor and featuring music by Bono and the Edge, will begin preview performances at the newly renamed Foxwoods Theatre (formerly the Hilton Theatre) on Nov. 14 and will open on Dec. 21.
“Spider-Man” was originally supposed to open in February, but the escalating cost of the musical — which is said to be the most expensive ever on Broadway — caused the production to be pushed back.
Tickets for “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark” are set to go on sale to the general public in September, but no specific date was given.
THERE’S MORE, READ THE REST
