Spider-Man has conquered the movies. Now it's Broadway's turn.
"Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark" will open Feb. 18, 2010, at the Hilton Theatre. Preview performances begin Jan. 16.
Producers say the musical, directed by Julie Taymor, will feature a score by Bono and The Edge. Taymor, the creative force behind Disney's long-running "Lion King," will co-write the book with Glen Berger.
The story was inspired by the Marvel comic books hero and will include the story of his origins as well as new material.
