Beleaguered Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark postpones Broadway start date
Amidst all of the Spiderman-drama of late last year, the producers of the forthcoming musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark failed to actually confirm that the show would not start performances on February 25, 2010, as originally announced. Most people assumed that it wouldn't be opening that soon, given all of the Spiderman musical's financial trouble, but ticket holders were left to wonder whether or not they'd actually get to use their Spider-Man tickets at all.
Finally today the producers of the big-budgeted Broadway show formally announced that Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will not be opening in February, and that people who already purchased tickets can get a refund through Ticketmaster now if they so choose. However, the Spiderman production team does plan on announcing an actual opening date (most likely to be some time late this year) shortly, so ticket-holders also have the option of waiting until the revised performance schedule is announced, at which point they can simply exchange their current Spider-Man tickets for a suitable date.
