Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark resumed preview performances at the Foxwoods Theatre May 12, after going on a three-week hiatus, and will officially open on Broadway June 14. ABC's Cynthia McFadden goes backstage at the Foxwoods and sits down with composers Bono and The Edge to talk about Spider-Man—take two.


Playwright Roberto Aguirre Sacasa (a Marvel comics writer and an acclaimed dramatist), director Philip William McKinley (The Boy From Oz) and choreographer Chase Brock (City Center Encores! Lost in the Stars) are the new additions to the musical's creative team.

Composers Bono and The Edge talk to ABC about why the musical needed to be changed and even said they agreed with The New York Times' poor review of the original production.

Injured actor Christopher Tierney is also back in the cast of the musical after taking a break to recover from his 30-feet fall during the Dec. 20, 2010, performance—he talks to McFadden about his flying stunts over the audience and offers a glimpse as to how they are performed.

Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark stars Reeve Carney as Peter Parker, Jennifer Damiano as Mary Jane and T.V. Carpio as Arachne.

The full Spider-Man special will be aired on Nightline May 20 at 11:35 PM ET.
