The show features music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge of the band U2, and a book by director Julie Taymor and Glen Berger.
The show, which began previews on November 28, had previously announced opening dates in December 2010 and this month, and it most recently been scheduled to open on February 7. According to a statement released by lead producer Michael Cohl, this will be the final postponement. The statement also says the delay is needed to give the creative team more time to "fine tune" certain aspects of the show, notably a new ending.
In addition, performances scheduled for January 18 and January 25 have been cancelled. All ticketholders for those performances will be offered refunds or exchanges.
Since previews began, actor Christopher Tierney -- the main aeralist for the show -- was seriously injured in an onstage accident on December 20, and actress Natalie Mendoza, who originated the role of Arachne, was injured off-stage in early December and subsequently departed the show earlier this month.
The show stars Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Jennifer Damiano as Mary Jane Watson, and Patrick Page as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin. It also features T.V.
