Producers announced late last week that Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark has delayed its opening night, previously set for January 11, 2011 to Monday, February 7. Live Design will be featuring an in-depth microsite dedicated to the design and engineering of the show directly following the opening.
Directed by Julie Taymor with new music and lyrics by U2's Bono and The Edge, the production is currently in previews at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre (formerly Hilton Theatre).

In a statement, lead producer Michael Cohl said, “The creative team is implementing truly exciting changes throughout the preview process. Due to some unforeseeable setbacks, most notably the injury of a principal cast member, it has become clear that we need to give the team more time to fully execute their vision. SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is an extremely ambitious undertaking, as everyone knows, and I have no intention of cutting a single corner in getting to the finish line.”
The production features lighting design by Don Holder, scenic design by George Tsypin, projection design by Kyle Cooper, sound design by Jonathan Deans, aerial design by Scott Rodgers, and costumes by Eiko Ishioka. Stay tuned to livedesignonline.com for updates as they are available.
