On the June 19 episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," the show featured Tony Award winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole) as Amanda Reese, a character based on initial Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark director/co-bookwriter/co-creator Julie Taymor.

The episode was based on the drama surrounding the much-in-the-news Broadway musical that officially opened June 14 at the Foxwood's Theatre. Prior to opening night, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark had been in previews since November 2010 and faced numerous casualties, including actor Christopher Tierney falling 30 feet during a performance and suffering a skull fracture and cracked vertebrae.

The "Law & Order" episode, according to TVGuide.com, focused on "a high-flying show called Icarus, which detectives begin investigating when a botched stunt leads to one of the actor's death. Suspects include a 'high-strung and larger than life' director possibly modeled after Spider-Man's one-time director Julie Taymor. The episode also features a bisexual rock-star composer named Arno."
