Spider-man Turn Off the DarkSpider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been in the news a lot recently.  The troubled Broadway musical will be seeing another delay.  This is the fifth delay for the musical which will now open on March 15.  I’m willing to bet that it doesn’t open in 2011 and gets a few more delays.  Producers, Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris, said the opening was pushed back “to allow for more time to fine-tune aspects of the show, including the new ending.”  Cohl also picked this date to make sure it was the “final postponement.”

Grammy-winning record producer Steve Lillywhite has also joined the musical’s staff.  He’s working on the cast album and has worked with U2 who’s Bono and The Edge are responsible for the musical’s music.

And in stranger news, Glenn Beck railed against theater critics and declaring the musical better than Wicked.  On his radio show the controversial commentator used a fake French accent to mock critics who’ve been taking the musical to task.  He also called “Spider-Man” as the 21st century equivalent of “The Phantom of the Opera.”
