Spider-Man opening delayed again

New York - Troubled broadway musical Spider-Man, the most expensive show ever created for the Great White Way, appears headed for another delay as producers weigh a decision to push its opening into February, according to media reports on Thursday.

The New York Times, citing two unnamed sources involved with the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, said moving it from a planned January 11 debut will allow creators to stage a new final number, rewrite some dialogue and add or delete scenes.

A spokesperson for the show declined to comment.

Based on the teenage comic book superhero, Spider-Man was directed by Julie Taymor with music from U2's Bono and The Edge, and it cost more than $65m to bring it from concept to the stage.

But with a lot of high-tech effects and actors and actresses soaring over the audience in wire riggings, the show has been fraught with peril from the beginning.

Already, its opening has been delayed a few times, initially due to financial problems and more recently performers suffering injuries followed by technical difficulties during current previews.
