Yesterday was the Broadway preview premiere of Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark in New York City, after years of development and work. Tony and Emmy-winning director Julie Taymor (of The Lion King musical fame) headed up the project, with Bono and The Edge from U2 creating the music.
The rock opera was recently featured on Sixty Minutes, which you can view below. It shows some great behind-the-scenes footage of the writing of the score, the creating of the sets, and the actors learning how to fly, of course.
Official opening night is January 11th, 2011, and it is slated to run until at least April of next year.
