Spider-Man Can’t Catch A Break on Broadway

The AP reports that Alan Cumming, slated to play the Green Goblin, has dropped out of the new Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark musical due to “scheduling conflicts.” Considering he thought he’d be doing the part nearly a year before the show now “may” open, this shouldn’t really be a suprise. The show’s original Mary Jane Watson, Evan Rachel Wood, had pulled out of the production back in March. No word yet on who will replace either role.

So far Reeve Carney remains as Peter Parker / Spider-Man for an opening that is still not formaly set, though the target remains sometime in the Fall 2010 Broadway season at the Hilton Theatre.
