VIDEO: On This Day, June 14- SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK Opens On Broadway

The musical starred Reeve Carney, Patrick Page and Jennifer Damiano.

On this day in 2011, the Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, 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.

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.
