Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark officially opened on Broadway June 14 at the Foxwoods Theatre following the longest preview period in Broadway history. The musical had taken a three-week hiatus to rework original director/co-bookwriter/co-creator Julie Taymor's initial vision; the production resumed May 12.


Here, on "The Late Show With David Letterman," Letterman tells the audience the top ten changes he noticed when talking about the "re-imagined" version that opened last night—including the change of name to Spider-Mormon after the recent Tony sweep made by The Book of Mormon.

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) joined the production’s creative team to make major changes. Glen Berger remained on the team as a co-writer.

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