'Spider-Man' Set for June Return to Broadway


'Spider-Man' Set for June Return to Broadway


U2 stars Bono and The Edge's troubled 'Spider-Man' musical will relaunch in June.

The producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" have announced the show will return to the New York stage on 14 June after a series of safety issues prompted them to put the show on hiatus.

The revamped version of the production will include new songs written by Bono and The Edge, according to reports.

The musical has been blighted by problems since its delayed launch last year and the show has yet to get past previews.

Cast members have been injured after stunts went awry and early reviews were dreadful. But the show was a big hit for theatregoers, who turned up in droves to see it.

The revamped show will feature a new director - creator Julie Taymor quit as the creative force of the musical in March, and she has been replaced by Broadway veteran Phil McKinley.
