Rumors are flying this morning about the troubled musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. The New York Times reported yesterday that director Julie Taymor, other members of the creative team, and the show’s producers are scheduled to have an important meeting today to discuss the show’s future. Today, the New York Post‘s Michael Riedel – a reporter who covers the Broadway beat and passes around the juiciest gossip on the Great White Way – has said that Spider-Man won’t be postponed indefinitely as many have suggested over the last several months. Instead, it will just push back opening until the summer of 2010, when Taymor and company will finally have the highly complex show ready. This would mean that Spider-Man won’t make the deadline for this year’s Tony Awards, but then again most people probably won’t need a Tony win as an incentive to see this much-buzzed-about musical with amazing aerial effects and songs by U2’s Bono and The Edge.
