NEW YORK (AP) - Spider-Man’s web has gotten tangled on Broadway.

Several delays and at least two actors left dangling from cables marred the first preview of the mega-musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”

According to published reports, Sunday night’s performance of the reported $65 million show ran over three hours because flying tricks went wrong and the musical had to stop at least five times.

Audience members said Natalie Mendoza and Reeve Carney, who plays the comic-book hero, were both stuck suspended over the crowd.

The show is the brainchild of Tony-winning director Julie Taymor and U2’s Bono and The Edge, who wrote the music. More than eight years in the making, delays and injuries have plagued the show’s debut. It officially opens in January.
