The third time’s the charm? Opening night of the Broadway production of “Spiderman: Turn off the Dark” has been delayed… again. The production has been hit with several constraints which include injuries and financial struggles. The producers however assure that the delay is due to the fact that they need more time to fine tune the production. The production has now been postponed until the 7th day of February. The producers this time promise that the production’s opening date will not be delayed again.
Some were tempted to believe that production was cursed. After struggling with finances, there have been series of accidents on the set. A stuntman was injured in both arms when he was trying an aerial stunt. That injury shadows when it is compared with the injury suffered by Christopher Tierney. He plummeted from 30ft and fell into an orchestra pit. The accident resulted in the actor breaking his skull, ribs and three lumber vertebrae. That was not all. He also suffered serious internal bleeding and a bruised lung.
The production of the musical has so far exceeded $60 million. The movie though continues to enjoy great box office success.
