Spider-Man has played savior plenty of times. But judging by the week he's having, we'd be hard pressed to find a damsel in quite as much distress as the superhero himself.
Producers of the clunkily named Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark announced today that they would be offering refunds to any fans who were deluded hopeful enough to spring for tickets for the show's inaugural run. Previews were scheduled to start (and according to their woefully outdated website, still are) on Feb. 25.
Instead, producers of the Marvel musical, which will be directed by Julie Taymor and star Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming, say the show will now open at an unspecidied date later in 2010.
Until then, consider Peter Parker parked.
