Spider-Man Finally Sticks It

It seemed like only a superhero could salvage the plan to stage Spider-Man on Broadway.  Delays related to financing and the daunting technical complications of producing the musical threatened doom repeatedly during the decades long effort to bring Spider-Man to a New York Stage.  The musical, which will feature music composed by Bono and The Edge of U2, finally has a date to begin preview performances.  Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will open at the Foxwoods Theater (the former Hilton Theater) on Sunday, November 14.  The regular run of the musical, said to have a production budget of $50 million, is slated to start Tuesday, December 21.  The play is being directed by Julie Taymor who was credited for much of the success of The Lion King, the extravagant production production that has grossed over $700 million dollars on Broadway alone since opening 13 years ago.
