Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, with music by Bono and The Edge, is a big musical. This stunning and powerful show features one of Marvel Comics most enigmatic and popular superheros: Spider-Man. The gargantuan musical offers magnificent special effects, major production numbers and music that is at times haunting and other times driving and passionate. Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark is overwhemling, engrossing and deliberately theatrical, This is a “must see” show.


Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark is the thrilling, comical and dramatic story of Peter Parker, a geeky guy who becomes a superhero after being bitten by a genetically altered spider. When transformed into Spider-Man, Parker becomes one of the finest fighters of bad guys and villians you’ll ever see. His physical abilties are overwhemlingly inspiring as Spider-Man ably defends the innocent from the wicked.
And although there are human elements in Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark that make Parker endearing, there are impressive arachnid-like characteristics that turn him into a spellbinding hero who utilizes amazing special talents, such as the ability to cast his web and use his tendrils amongst skyscrapers, maximizing his superior strength in ways he’d never before imagined and refining his newly upgraded senses to dominate others. Innovation, technical virtuosity and a penchant to create the spectacular are all key in making this musical come alive on the Broadway stage.
But it’s not all big effects and production numbers in Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark. Spider-Man carries major mental baggage. As it is with those who find themselves transformed into superior beings, Spider-Man realizes that his new superpowers can destroy at will and that means that he has a responsibility to society. The unremarkable Peter Parker is now the very remarkable Spider-Man, and he must be mindful of that.
Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark is a major Broadway event. Get your tickets today!
