As Rich Schapiro of the NY Daily News reported last week, the opening night for the Spiderman musical on Broadway has been delayed once again. Here's what the producer had to say by way of explanation:
Spider-Man "is 10 times more complicated to [technically rehearse] than anything else, and the preview schedule allows for only very limited rehearsal time" - 12 hours per week, said Michael Cohl, co-producer of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," noting that the new final scene still needs work.
"We simply need more time to fully execute the creative team's vision before freezing the show."
I've got news for you, Mike. It took 410 days to build the Empire State Building. It cost $40,948,900 to build. You and your team are staging a Broadway show and are into it for $65 million. Just saying..
