The Plot

Inspired by the original story of Marvel Comics’ web-slinging wonder, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark tells a tale of teenage angst and heroic transformation. Starting the show as a nerdy high-school student with an unrequited crush on his beautiful neighbor, Peter Parker has an accidental run-in with a radioactive spider that gifts him with super strength, incredible climbing skills, and the ability to shoot webs out of his wrists. After a petty thug kills his uncle, Parker dedicates himself to fighting crime while acting on his long-smoldering affection for Mary Jane. The story races through crises of conscience, aerial heroics, and passionate love, before a climactic showdown with the villainous Green Goblin.

The Sights

One of the most expensive Broadway shows ever developed, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark features breathtakingly acrobatic stunts and eye-popping sets. Actors fly high above the audience’s heads, re-creating Spidey's web-enabled explorations of his native Manhattan, as well as his intricate aerial battles with his arch nemesis Green Goblin. The elaborate sets spring up and shift across the stage, evoking the labyrinthine feel of navigating the streets of New York and the dizzying sensation of soaring above its skyscrapers.

The Music

Written by legendary rockers Bono and The Edge, the show's music strikes heroic chords with the same brand of expansive melodies that have won U2 22 Grammy awards. Pushing beyond their usual rock sensibilities, the dynamic duo wins over ears with the sweeping power of heartfelt ballads such as "Rise Above," as well as bass-thumping numbers such as "A Freak Like Me Needs Company," whose kinetic glee recalls the energy of high-powered circus performances.

Foxwoods Theatre

The Foxwoods Theatre is the glittering child of its parents, the Apollo and Lyric Theaters. Both theaters had their heyday in the Roaring ’20s. Both gradually devolved into movie houses of ill repute by the 1970s and contributed to 42nd Street's reputation as a sleazy byway. When the street was restored to respectability in the late ’90s, a restoration crew cut each theater's best elements into sections, returned them to their original splendor, and then combined them into a single palatial venue. Outside, passersby can bask in the brick, terra-cotta columns, and balconied windows of the Lyric's turn-of-the-century façade. Inside, audiences can retire to the Apollo's lobby during intermission to sip refreshments and idly sculpt busts of Athena out of the surrounding marble. The Apollo's freshly gilded dome has been set within a second dome and forms the luminous centerpiece of the theater, casting its light onto 1,813 seats with perfect sightlines to the repainted proscenium, as well as a frieze of Greek mythological murals looming over the side boxes.

The Foxwoods Theatre paid tribute to its Gilded Age origins with its inaugural production, Ragtime, and continues to wow audiences with such technically demanding productions as Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which involved a climactic aerial duel that took place in the air above the orchestra section.
