Faulkenberry succeeds Jennifer Damiano, who created the role of Mary Jane and played her final performance Nov. 6 at the Foxwoods Theatre.
As previously reported, the production will welcome Christina Sajous (Baby It's You!, American Idiot) as Arachne later this month. She will succeed T.V. Carpio, the show’s current Arachne, who will play her final show Nov. 13.
Here is a look at Faulkenberry on her first night:
Reeve Carney and Patrick Page 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."
