The most expensive show to ever be mounted on Broadway has also been one plagued with delays. "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" was scheduled to open in previews last February. But a budget crunch, injured actors and Labor Department investigations delayed the official opening of Julie Taymor's ambitious musical by nearly a year. It's now set to open February 7th. In this week's Arts File on WQXR, Kerry Nolan gets the lowdown on the production from David Cote, Theater Editor for Time Out New York.
