After a rocky development road and several delays, Spider-Man will indeed swoop onto Broadway at the end of this year, as producers have confirmed to EW that the much-anticipated show has set its opening night for Tuesday, Dec. 21. Previews of Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark—the period of public performances before the official opening—will being on Sunday, Nov. 14, at Broadway’s Foxwoods Theatre (previously known as the Hilton Theatre). Additionally, producers have finalized the core cast of the show: Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano (Next to Normal) will play Mary Jane Watson, while Patrick Page has officially been confirmed as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin. (Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming were previously attached to the roles.) The pair join the previously cast Reeve Carney, who’ll play Spider-Man. Rehearsals for the show’s complicated flying and choreography began July 19, while the full company comes together August 16 for rehearsals.
