Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, the highly-anticipated Broadway musical, will open at New York’s Hilton Theatre on February 18, 2010, with preview performances beginning January 16. The $40 million production, featuring songs and lyrics by U2’s Bono and The Edge, is believed to be the most expensive stage musical in Broadway history. “Spider-Man’s battles will hurtle the audience through an original story both recognizable and unexpected — yielding new characters as well as familiar faces — until a final surprising confrontation casts a startling new light on this hero’s journey,” producers said in a statement. Evan Rachel Wood will play love interest Mary-Jane. No other casting decisions have been announced. Tony Award-winning The Lion King director Julie Taymor will helm the show.
