The producers of the much-maligned, much-troubled "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" didn't decide yesterday whether the show would open on March 15.

On Friday, reports noted that now the decision about the opening will be announced in the middle of next week. By now the show has lost credibility, so we'll see.
What they did do on Thursday was release tickets to the TKTS Booth in Times Square, selling seats to the show at a 30% discount.
It is the first time that Spidey tickets were sold at the discount ticket booth since previews began last November. While it's not unusual to sell preview tickets at TKTS, it's sign that the temperature of the show is falling.
In contrast, "The Lion King," directed by Julie Taymor, who's calling the shots on "Spider-Man," has never sold a seat at TKTS -- during previews or during its long run. Ditto "Wicked."

You do the math.
And if you want to see what shows are for sale at TKTS, including
"Spider-Man" and dozens of others on and Off Broadway, there's an app for TKTS for iPhone and Android at:
