‘Spider-Man’ producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris apparently released a statement on Friday announcing that the final preview of the show will be on April 17, and its preview will resume on May 12, 2011. There will be no performances from April 19 to May 11.

Earlier this week, ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark‘ director Julie Taymor was reported to be replaced by Philip William McKinley, the director of ‘The Boy From Oz’, as the show went on a record-high of about 103 performances.

Another new team member will be Marvel Comics writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who will assist in rewriting the script, as well as musical consultant Paul Bogaev and sound designer Peter Hylenski.

In addition, U2’s Bono and The Edge had also show indications that there will be some new tunes for the said Broadway musical.

In line with this, producers said ticket-holders are being advised to choose as to either exchange or return their tickets for a refund, if they were bought from Ticketmaster or at Foxwoods Theater box office, while those purchased from other vendors can be arranged through the outlet concern.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark‘ has been the point of controversy during the past months due to series of accidents concerning four actors including stuntman Christopher Tierney who spent eight days in the hospital after falling from about 30 feet high from the stage.
