The latest sign that this thing is just going to be INCREDIBLE and awesome when all the kinks are worked out, the story’s rewritten, the cast replaced, and the songs swapped out for Beatles tunes everyone knows and loves:


The producers of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” are planning a significant overhaul of the $65 million Broadway musical that would involve shutting down performances for two to three weeks, as well as delaying its scheduled opening on March 15 for about three months, according to people who work on “Spider-Man” or were briefed on the producers’ plans.


The precise dates for the shutdown — needed to give the cast a break and to hold new rehearsals — have not been set, but they are expected to cover late April and early May, the people said.

The title will also be changed to “Spider-Man: Turn on the Dorks.” Keep in mind that the show is running anyway; yesterday it had it's 99th preview performance, which the NYTimes piece linked above says is twice as many as any other show in Broadway history.
