News   PHOTO CALL: Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark's Final Pre-Hiatus Curtain Call
 
The April 17 performance of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark marked the final chance for audiences to see director-co-creator's Julie Taymor original vision for the musical, which began previews Nov. 28, 2010, but has yet to officially open.

The musical will take a temporary hiatus April 19-May 11 following a much-in-the-news preview period that included several cast injuries and numerous delays for the opening night. When performances resume May 12, audiences can expect major changes to the book as well as new songs by Bono and The Edge. Opening night is scheduled for June 14.

Here is a look at the final performance prior to the break:


In recent weeks newcomers have been added to the creative team, including playwright Roberto Aguirre Sacasa (a Marvel comics writer and an acclaimed dramatist), director Philip William McKinley (The Boy From Oz) and choreographer Chase Brock. Brock recently provided musical staging for the City Center Encores! production of Lost in the Stars and also worked on the Wii video game "Dance on Broadway."

The cast features Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Next to Normal Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano as Mary Jane Watson, T.V. Carpio as Arachne and Broadway veteran Patrick Page as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin.

Tickets are currently on sale through Oct. 2. Visit SpiderManOnBroadway.com.
