Lenk has also been seen in iWitness at the Mark Taper Forum; Elemeno Pea, Cloudlands and Caucasian Chalk Circle at SouthCoast Repertory; the title role in Lovelace: A Rock Opera, for which she won LA Weekly and Garland awards; and her solo music project, moxy phinx.

The current cast stars Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Rebecca Faulkenberry as Mary Jane Watson and Robert Cuccioli as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin.

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark features music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge, direction by Philip Wm. McKinley and a book co-written by Julie 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."
