Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is one of the most technically elaborate Broadway musicals of all time. It brings the Manhattan skyline to life on stage and includes incredible aerial stunts as Spider-Man flies over the audience, actors swinging from "webs", several aerial combat scenes and other highly technical stunts.
There are inventive costumes, puppets, masks, projections and more stunning visual techniques used throughout the show.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark ended up having the longest preview period (182 preview performances) in history.
It gained notoriety for its production troubles, related to both the difficulty of its stunts and frequent retooling of the book and score. Both rehearsals and previews went on longer than expected. Several actors were injured during the process. At the first preview performance, these technical challenges caused several lengthy interruptions.
