Work to Resume on Doomed Spider-Man Musical


Although stars Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming were reportedly let go from their contracts, "modest construction work" will begin again tomorrow on Broadway's Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, following last month's stoppage. Production sources say the problems in raising the show's $35 million budget have not yet been resolved, though, so Michael Riedel should be able to squeeze at least another half dozen columns out of this thing.
