SpiderMan the musical spins a new take on the web-slinger, with new characters and old faces, until a final confrontation sheds new light on his journey. Drawing from over forty years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man: Turn off the DarkI on Broadway tells the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character. Judged purely as a musical theater piece, Spider-Man is a rather mediocre one. But, as theatrical entertainment, the show is an absolute blast. The comic book-inspired set and costume design is visually impressive and creatively rendered, and the flying and aerial choreography is stunning. Everyone including children of all ages must have a ticket for entry. Recommended for ages 8 and older.

Drawing from over 40 years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle , through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character. Performances ended on Jan. Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark loosely follows the storyline of the comic book series and the film adaptation of Spider-Man , while adding its own twist on the popular tale. When nerdy teenager Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he discovers he has obtained super strength, web-spinning abilities and other spider-like powers. Parker soon finds himself battling scientist-turned-villain Norman Osborn, who adopts the alter-ego of the Green Goblin.

In theory, this should have been a surefire success; the superhero craze was only just beginning, and Spider-Man was at the forefront of it. In a remarkable coup, Bono and U2 were commissioned to write the soundtrack, and although the stars struggled to live up to Bono's vocals, the songs were pretty strong. This led to running battles with Marvel for literally months, with Avi Arad - then chief creative officer of Marvel Entertainment - refusing to sign off on the character. And then Marvel went radio-silent. A shake-up was in the works at Marvel Entertainment, with Avi Arad growing tired of the behind-the-scenes conflict there.
But in , when Berger was hired to work on a Broadway musical adaptation of Spider-Man , it seemed like a dream come true for the well-respected but financially struggling playwright. Everyone involved thought the show would be brilliant. But for a while everything seemed to be on track, with the script and music earning high praise from test audiences. But soon a string of mishaps plagued the production, from financing woes to technical glitches to injuries on set. When Taymor refused to change course, producers replaced her with former circus director Phil McKinley, whose family-friendly revamp became a fair financial success, while falling far short of brilliance. Berger chronicles the adventure in his memoir Song of Spider-Man , which should stand beside Oedipus Rex as a warning on the dangers of hubris. Still, Berger says that for all the drama, most elements of the musical actually worked quite well. So I wrote that scene, and I guess it got me the job. So I think it is very fair of the fans to expect a lot of respect for the material.
