Turn On The Dark: Spider-Man Ticket Sales Begin Again

Turn On The Dark: Spider-Man Ticket Sales Begin Again

It's official!

I've received confirmation that the long-delayed Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will begin Broadway previews on November 14. Opening night is scheduled for December 21.

Moments ago, I received an e-mail from Ticketmaster informing me that as a former ticketholder for performances that were scuttled earlier this year amidst the chaos in capitalizing this show, which some estimates have put at close to $50 million, I would be able to purchase tickets beginning at 12 noon today. (Yes, I actually was one of those who purchased tickets over a year ago! But I subsequently received a refund.)

U2's Bono (Paul David Hewson) and The Edge (David Howell Evans) are writing the score -- their first for a Broadway musical. Reeve Carney will star as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Jennifer Damiano will portray girlfriend Mary Jane Watson and Patrick Page will play Spider-Man's nemesis to the Green Goblin.

So, dear readers, now that we know the Julie Taymor-helmed Spider-Man is a go for November at the newly renamed Foxwoods Theatre (formerly Hilton Theatre) on Broadway, will you be attending?

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
