STAGE TUBE: Listen to SPIDER-MAN Reeve Carney Play Acoustic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
Reeve Carney performs songs by one iconic rock group every night with SPIDER-MAN, Turn Off the Dark's score being written by U2's Bono and The Edge, but he recently sang another famed group's song when he performed Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" for Rolling Stone.
The highly publicized SPIDER-MAN, Turn Off the Dark is now in previews at the Foxwoods Theatre on Broadway. Opening night is currently scheduled for March 15, 2011.
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.
