Rebecca Faulkenberry (Rock of Ages) and Christina Sajous (Baby It’s You, American Idiot) will join the cast of Broadway’s Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark in the roles of Mary Jane Watson and Arachne, respectively. Starting dates for the two actresses will be announced shortly.

Jennifer Damiano, who created the role of Mary Jane, will play her final performance Nov. 6, while T.V. Carpio, the show’s current Arachne, will play her final show Nov. 13.

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

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."
