Spider-Man Musical Might Delay ... Again

Surprise, surprise ... Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Julie Taymor's $65 million mega-musical, has delayed its opening night again.  For the sixth time this year.  The reason given this time?  According to the New York Times, who spoke with three anonymous sources who have insider knowledge of the deliberations, the reason is "to make more changes to the show in hopes of improving its worldwide commercial prospects after theater critics savaged it this month."  How long will we have to wait for it to open?  Maybe as late as June, which would push the show into next year's Tony race, given an April 28th deadline for shows to open and still be considered eligible for the 2011 Tony Awards.  For more detail, here's the New York Times article for those who are interested.
