U2’s ‘Spider-Man’ musical delayed again to cater for new ending

Producers promise this is 'the final postponement'

The Spider-Man musical scored by U2‘s Bono and The Edge has again been postponed – this time in order to allow the cast rehearse a new ending.

‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’ has been plagued by problems, including lead actress Natalie Mendoza pulling out earlier this month following an onstage injury, as well as numerous other delays. In December, another actor from the musical was hospitalised after falling off the set. It will now open officially on Broadway in March, reports BBC News.

The show’s producer, Michael Cohl, said that the delay will be “the final postponement”.

Meanwhile, Bono and The Edge have also been personally working on the show again recently in light of its problems, bringing in producer Steve Lillywhite to work with the cast on its music, reports Deadline.com. Although its problems have been highly-publicised, tickets for the musical are reportedly selling well.
