'Spiderman' on Broadway to take 3-week hiatus

April 18, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
The Broadway show "Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark" is taking a three-week hiatus.

Though Sunday's performance got a standing ovation from the audience, the less-than-stellar reviews from critics have triggered a revamping process.

During the break, a new director will make some changes, including the addition of new songs and tweaks to the storyline.

The new version is scheduled to debut May 12.
