SPIDER-MAN First Preview Morning Reading Roundup

SPIDER-MAN First Preview Morning Reading RoundupAll anyone in the Theatre World is talking about so far this morning is last night's first preview of the highly anticipated SPIDER-MAN: Turn Off the Dark. I was there and it was certainly a night to remember. Message boards and Twitter were abuzz throughout the show, as audiences sat through 4 technical stops in Act 1, and 1 in Act 2 as well as an elongated intermission (and one heckler), but the show as performed from beginning to end. 

The show also garnered what was most likely the most press coverage of a first preview in history. For a small preview -- check out The New York TimesThe New York Post and The Wall Street Journal and of course -- Rialto Chatter. And, even geek movie site - Ain't It Cool News

SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark began preview performances on Broadway on Sunday, November 28, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. Opening Night is now set for Tuesday evening, January 11, 2011. Directed byJulie Taymor and featuring a book by Julie Taymor and Glen Berger, and new music and lyrics by U2's Bono and The Edge, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark will open at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre (213 West 42nd Street). .

Featuring direction by Tony® Award-winner Julie Taymor (The Tempest, Across The Universe, The Lion King), music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge, a book co-written by Taymor and Glen Berger (Underneath The Lintel) and one of the most iconic title characters of all time, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is the most ambitious production ever undertaken on Broadway and finds astonishingly fresh ways to tell a story inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books. The show 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. SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark will thrill the audience through a unique entertainment experience in ways never- before-dreamed-possible in live theater.
