As part of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark's effort to honor society's unsung heroes, the Broadway musical will celebrate Tax Season with a Post-Tax Day ticket giveaway for certified public accountants on Tuesday, April 16. The first 50 CPAs (with appropriate proof of certification) in line at 10am at the Foxwoods Theatre box office will receive a complementary pair of tickets for the evening's performance.
"Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark celebrates unsung heroes, so who better to honor this time of year than those working so tirelessly to make sure we can all take as many deductions as possible," said Rick Miramontez, the show's spokesperson.
Featuring a score by Bono and the Edge, a book cowritten by Julie Taymor, Glen Berger, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and direction by Philip William McKinley, the high-flying musical tells the origin story of the masked crusader, inspired by the classic Marvel comic books. Leading the company are Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Rebecca Faulkenbery as Mary Jane Watson, Robert Cuccioli as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin, Katrina Lenk as Arachne, Michael Mulheren as J. Jonah Jameson, Ken Marks as Uncle Ben, and Isabel Keatng as Aunt May.
After its well-publicized preview period, Broadway's Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark has become known for its community outreach, from honoring "Everyday Heroes" who've done extraordinary things to offering Halloween safety tips for young New Yorkers.
