Home Theater Spider Man to Shut Down for Four Weeks to Retool; New Opening...

“Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” will shut down for four weeks, from April 19th to May 11, for retooling. Performances will resume on May 12th. A new opening night (maybe you never know…) is set for June 14th, two days after the Tony Awards. The show will not be eligible for the Tonys, which is too bad for Patrick Page, who plays the Green Goblin so well. Julie Taymor remains a mystery credit wise. A press release says she will not be with the show on a day to day basis. Right now performances will continue through April 17th. Will the show come back with the same cast? Who knows? I sure hope that Jennifer Damiano, TV Carpio, Patrick Page and Michael Mulheren all return. It could very well be that Reeve Carney leaves, but the answer, like so much of “Spider Man” remains hanging in the air.
