NEW YORK, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- The producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" say the Broadway musical is moving ahead but won't open as planned next month.

Julie Taymor's stage production, featuring music by Bono and the Edge, with Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming leading the cast, was slated to begin preview performances at Manhattan's Hilton Theatre Feb. 25.

"As announced late last year, the production is moving forward," the show's producers said in a statement Tuesday. "A revised schedule of preview performances, and an opening date in 2010, will be confirmed shortly. Ticketmaster is contacting ticket holders impacted by the delay. Anyone who has purchased tickets may request a refund from Ticketmaster immediately, or wait for the announcement of the new performance schedule at which time further details for new dates and exchanges will be announced."
