'Spider-Man' Musical Hit With Another Delay


'Spider-Man' Musical Hit With Another Delay


A preview for the Broadway show, which was scheduled on November 14, is set to be postponed as Safety Inspectors plan second investigation following stunt accident.

U2 stars Bono and The Edge's much-anticipated "Spider-Man" musical has been hit by another major blow - the project looks set for yet another delay due to an ongoing safety investigation. "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been under investigation by the New York State Department of Labor for its high-flying stunts, which left one actor with two broken wrists in October.

Safety Inspectors visited Broadway's Foxwoods Theater on Wednesday, November 3 but had to schedule a second inspection when producers were unable to show them every planned stunt. They have been told they cannot stage the show for the public until state inspectors have approved all the special effects and safety procedures, following actor Kevin Aubin's accident.

The New York Times reports that means it's unlikely the show will begin previews on November 14, as scheduled. "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark", which features a score by U2 stars The Edge and Bono, has been in the works for six years and producers had initially planned to begin previews in February this year, but financial and technical issues and casting problems prompted them to reschedule the show.

The ambitious $60 million (GBP40 million) production - Broadway's most expensive - was expected to begin previews on November 14 and officially open in January 2011.
