"Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" Leaving Broadway

Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images for Tony Awards Productions(NEW YORK) -- After two-plus years on Broadway, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will close in January.

A spokesperson for the production says it will head to Las Vegas.  Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the musical -- which was scored by U2's Bono and The Edge, and was the most expensive show in Broadway history with a production cost of $75 million -- reportedly had failed to break even in recent weeks.

During its Broadway run, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has had to overcome injuries to several of its actors, as well as the firing of its original director.
