Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is charging forward in the wake of a recent production halt. Previews for the show have been canceled for the first three weeks in April, but now under new direction, the show has a new official opening date.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is officially on for June 14th, All Headline News reports.
As we know this date is tentative, as it marks the Broadway musical’s sixth delay — the show has been in previews on-and-off since last November and most recently previews have been canceled from April 19 and May 11 after director Julie Taymor stepped down.
“The additional time commitment required by this new plan will make it impossible for director and co-book writer Julie Taymor to continue on in her day-to-day duties with the production,” a press release for the show stated.
Julie has been replaced by a new creative team comprised of The Boy From Oz director Philip William McKinley and also Spider-Man comic book writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
U2’s Bono and The Edge are still on board to write songs for the show, which will now star previews on May 12 at Broadway’s Foxwoods Theatre.
