Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark Playing Now with New Cast!

spidermanIt’s gained a lot of buzz, with six months of preview showings and the official opening this past June. But now Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark has returned to the Broadway stage and it’s brought some new cast members along for the ride!

This version of Spider-Man has become extremely popular among audiences, being one of the only shows where not only props come flying through the air — but actual characters too! Yes, as you sit in your seat you’ll be up close and personal with the actors like with no other show, as Spider-Man zips around the tall buildings of Manhattan trying to stop the Green Goblin in his tracks – and win Mary Jane’s heart.

The play, which has been described as everything from a “rock musical” to a “pop-up, pop-art opera,” had a hard time getting off the ground due to production delays and budget concerns. Neither was a huge surprise, as it’s also been called “the most technically complex show ever on Broadway.” Now it’s been playing regularly on Broadway for the past six months, and the issues have been ironed out.

The unique elements that make this show what it was are still there, and audiences will still be delighted with the zigzagging characters and the incredible musical score created by U2’s Bono. But, they also get some fresh faces such as Rebecca Faulkenberry, who stepped into the role of Mary Jane on November 8; and Christina Sajour, who replaced Arachne on November 15.

And for those who have already seen it, now is a great time to get tickets for another showing as Spider-Man Reeve Carney has taken some time off this year to work on a television project. He will be back but during his leave, understudy Matthew James Thomas will be stepping into the role. It’s one that Thomas is familiar with as he’s played the part two shows a week, due to the high physical intensity that the role requires.

Same great music, same great action, and a few new faces thrown in — get your Spider-Man tickets today!
