New York, NY (5/16/12) – SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark, Broadway’s most popular new show, today welcomed its one-millionth audience member, making it the fastest show in recorded Broadway history to reach that milestone (according to statistical information provided by The Broadway League).  The record-breaking audience member (Yvelisse Fermin from Flushing, Queens) attended today’s matinee performance, according to producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris.

“We’ve always said that the most gratifying part of producing this show is seeing the amazing audience reaction night after night,” Cohl and Harris said in a joint statement.  “It is mind-blowing that more than one-million audience-members have already walked through our doors, and we look forward to welcoming millions more.” 

SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is Broadway’s most popular new show, and one of the most famous theatrical events in history.  In the past year, the production has been seen by 1 million audience members from around the world. It features music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge, direction by Philip William McKinley (The Boy From Oz),  and a book co-written by Julie Taymor, Glen Berger (Underneath The Lintel) and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Fantastic Four and Spider-Man comics, “Big Love”). Scenic Designer George Tsypin and Costume Designer Eiko Ishioka are winners of Outer Critics Circle Awards and were recently nominated for Tony® Awards for their work on SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark.

The world’s most recognizable super hero leaps off the comic book pages and onto the Broadway stage in SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark.  Peter Parker’s ordinary teenage life takes a turn for the extraordinary when he’s bitten by a  genetically altered spider and suddenly finds himself endowed with incredible superpowers.  Parker quickly learns that with great power comes great responsibility as he tries to juggle the demands of high school and home life, while battling the Green Goblin and his band of super villains as they try to take down New York City and destroy everything Peter holds dear – including the beautiful girl-next-door, Mary Jane Watson.  This high-flying groundbreaking, and history-making production brings this story – inspired by more than fifty years of Marvel comic books – thrillingly to life!

Tickets for SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark are priced from $79.50 - $159.50, and can be purchased online or at the Foxwoods Theatre box office (213 West 42nd Street), which is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
