'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' Finally Opens on Broadway

Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic/Getty(NEW YORK) -- After a series of delays, production mishaps, and cast injuries, the big-budget musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark finally opened Tuesday night on Broadway.

U2's Bono and The Edge, who wrote the music for the show, addressed the crowd, saying, "We couldn't give up, we had to save Spider-Man, because Spider-Man has to save New York."

Opening night drew a number of recognizable names, such as former President Bill Clinton, Barbara Walters and Matt Damon. Clinton gave the show a positive review, telling ABC News Radio, "I just loved it, it was so great."

The opening of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was delayed a total of five times, and saw original director Julie Taymor replaced, as producers attempted to work out the kinks.
