There were several delays during a preview performance "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" last night, and two actors -- including the show's star, Reeve Carney -- were left dangling from cables, the AP reported. The production was stopped at least five times because of gaffes. Written and directed by Julie Taymor, with music by U2's Bono and The Edge, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been set back numerous times. The $65 million production officially opens in January.
