U2's 'Spider-Man' Musical to Reopen Next Month

Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic/Getty(NEW YORK) -- A revamped production of the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is now in previews and will have its official Broadway opening on June 14.

According to published reports, the musical -- which features a score by Bono and The Edge -- includes not only some new scenes but one brand-new song, "A Freak Like Me."  In addition, snippets of U2 classics like "Beautiful Day" and "Where the Streets Have No Name" are now woven into the show.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is the most expensive musical ever staged, with a staggering budget of $70 million.  The musical recently went on hiatus for nearly a month after a series of delays prompted by technical glitches, cast injuries, and negative reviews from critics.
