Cast members from Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark perform at Terminal 8 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, as part of American Airlines' JFK concert series, Sept. 7 at 2:30 PM and 3:15 PM.
American Airlines, which has been named the official airline of Broadway's Spider-Man, presents the performances as part of the production's media and marketing campaign; the airline has an on-site presence and hospitality benefits at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre, where the show is currently playing.
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."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
