Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli will assume the role of Green Goblin/Norman Osborn in Broadway’s Spider-Man, Turn Off The Dark on August 7 at the Foxwoods Theatre. Original star Patrick Page will depart the production on August 5 to play Comte de Guiche in the upcoming Broadway revival of Cyrano de Bergerac.
Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark follows the story of Peter Parker (Reeve Carney), whose ordinary teenage life takes a turn for the extraordinary when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and suddenly finds himself endowed with superpowers. Parker quickly learns that with great power comes great responsibility as he tries to juggle the demands of high school and home life, while battling the Green Goblin and his band of super villains as they try to take down New York City. Peter must fight to save everything he holds dear – including the beautiful girl-next-door, Mary Jane Watson (Rebecca Faulkenberry).
Cuccioli is best known for his star performance in Jekyll & Hyde and has appeared on Broadway in Les Miserables and off-Broadway in Temporary Help, Enter the Guardsman, Dietrich & Chevalier, And the World Goes ‘Round, The Rothschilds and Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.
Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark features music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy Award-winners Bono and The Edge, direction by Philip William McKinley, original direction by Tony Award-winner Julie Taymor, and a book co-written by Taymor, Glen Berger and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
