Spider-Man has hit more snags en route to its debut as a Broadway musical, Bloomberg reports. Rehearsals for the U2-scored production, set to begin this spring, have been postponed indefinitely. With its budget currently at $31.3 million, the Spidey musical is the most expensive Broadway show ever, and costs could balloon to as much as $40 million.
Featuring music written by U2’s Bono and the Edge, the show has enlisted director Julie Taymor, who last dazzled Great White Way audiences with her Tony Award-winning Lion King adaptation a decade ago. The delays stem from indecision on the part of Taymor’s creative team, according to a source involved with the production. “This is the third time the date has been changed so far,” the source said.
