There is word that “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” could lose a key member of its creative team – and experience another delay of opening day.
A source tells NY1 the official opening – currently set for March 15 – is expected to be pushed back for a sixth time, likely until June. The move would knock the musical out of contention for this year's Tony Awards.
The New York Times reports negotiations are underway to either expand the creative team, or possibly even have star director Julie Taymor leave altogether.
A spokesperson would not comment on that report.
The $65 million musical, created by Taymor and U2's Bono and the Edge, is already the most expensive in Broadway history. It's been panned by critics, and hit with labor violations following a string of accidents that injured cast members.
