NEW YORK, March 11 (UPI) -- The producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" said Friday the troubled Broadway musical will finally open June 14 after months of delays.

Lead producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris said performances from April 19 to May 11 will be canceled to allow rehearsal time for changes being implemented in the $65 million show, which features music by U2's Bono and The Edge.

Preview performances are to resume May 12. They initially began in November but the opening day has been delayed several times because of technical snafus, as well as story and music problems.

All ticket-holders for the canceled performances who purchased their tickets through Ticketmaster or at the box office will be offered the option of exchanging or returning their tickets. Ticket-holders who purchased through other outlets should contact the point of purchase for further information, the producers said in a posting on the show's Web site.
