U2's Spider-Man Musical Hits Another Snag
The delay marks the fourth instance in which the opening for the music has been postponed. "We are looking for the extraordinary here, we are nearly there," said Bono and The Edge in a joint statement, explaining the decision to make additional tweaks to the production. The U2 frontman and guitarist, who have written the score for the show, are reportedly writing additional music as well.
Four actors have been injured in preview performances of the musical, which, at a cost of $65 million, is Broadway's most-expensive ever. Co-producer Michael Cohl promised the latest delay would constitute the "final postponement."
