‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,’ an Amazing Spectacle
Since the day it was announced, Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has done everything as big as possible. Its budget smashed all prior records, and then it smashed itself with production challenges and extended preview delays. Its musical producers have the biggest names you can find in rock: Bono and The Edge from U2. And its stunts and set production are high-flying and theater-changing, bringing audience-members off the streets of Manhattan and into the middle of aerial combat amongst the tops of skyscrapers.

And, oh yeah, one of the most popular comic heroes of all time happens to be there, too. Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark on Broadway doesn’t do anything small, and it’s bright and loud for two and a half hours in a way only the most expensive musical ever could be.
If you want a preview of the show’s story, the simplest way is to watch the 2002 installment of the movie franchise. That method will be far more efficient than the show’s own preview period, which set records of its own with over 180 preview performances, six months, and lengthy delays both during shows and between them while technical difficulties were corrected. The cast was changed, parts of the story were re-written, but Spider-Man on Broadway became official in June of 2011 and has been capturing huge numbers of fans and box office receipts in its web (pun!) of intrigue. Check out the secrets of the unprecedented stunts!
Now that the stunts have been refined and the story tweaked to best showcase your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man musical, you can watch Peter Parker discover himself, his love for Mary Jane Watson and his first menacing villain – the Green Goblin – with your own eyes. Spider-Man on Broadway features comic-like scenes projected all over the theater, set pieces that move to draw you into the action, and suspended actors flying around the Chrysler Building in a battle of good and evil.
