The shutdown of the Spider-Man musical, initially reported as a temporary hiatus while a new producer was installed (see “Spider-Man Play Shut Down”), may be more permanent, according to New York Post columnist Michael Riedel, who also reported the initial shutdown.  He reports that the cast has been released from their contracts, which would make restarting production difficult.  Riedel said that a new producer could not be found for what he called “the biggest fiasco in Broadway history.”
