Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark Tickets

Lyric Theatre

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. The musical follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down—literally—when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. 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.

Story

What Is The Story of Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark?
Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark loosely follows the storyline of the comic book series and the 2002 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. As Parker’s troubles begin to pile up, he looks toward Arachne, a mythical spider goddess, for inspiration.

Critics' Reviews

"An overt crowd-pleaser. Patrick Page is an exuberantly entertaining villain; Reeve Carney conveys a youthful earnestness and burgeoning confidence that make him a compelling foil."

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

"A high-flying, fun adventure with New York City's favorite webslinger."
