VIDEO: On This Day, June 14- SPIDER-MAN Swings Onto Broadway!
On this day in 2011, the Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, finally celebrated its opening night, following the longest preview period in Broadway history.
Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark 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.
