News   PHOTO CALL: Christina Sajous Joins Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark
 
Christina Sajous (Baby It's You!, American Idiot) joined the cast of Broadway’s Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark in the role of Arachne beginning Nov. 15.

Sajous succeeds T.V. Carpio, who played her final performance Nov. 13 at the Foxwoods Theatre.

The production recently welcomed Rebecca Faulkenberry (Rock of Ages), who took over the role of Mary Jane Watson Nov. 10. Faulkenberry succeeded the show's original star, Jennifer Damiano, who played her final performance Nov. 6.

Reeve Carney and Patrick Page continue on in their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, respectively.

Here is Sajous' first-night bow:

Spider-Man features creative consultation by Philip William McKinley, original direction by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy Award winners Bono and The Edge, and book co-written by Taymor, Glen Berger and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, Spider-Man, according to press notes, "follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test."
