This delay will also postpone its scheduled opening on March 15 for about three months, according to people who work on Spider-Man or were briefed on the producers’ plans.

The precise dates for the shutdown have not been set, but they are expected around late April and early May. The new opening night was also not clear as of late Tuesday.

Spider-Man has been among the highest-grossing shows on Broadway since beginning preview performances on Nov. 28, earning $1.28 million last week.
