Film star Mike Myers attended the Thursday, October 20 performance of Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, at the Foxwoods Theatre. Afterwards, he and Spider-Man star Reeve Carney met with children from The Orphaned Starfish Foundation, and signed autographs.
The Foundation partners with orphanages and homes for impoverished children throughout Latin America. This week, it brought a group of orphans from 10 Latin American countries on a special 3 day visit to New York City which culminated with the visit to Spider-Man.
The musical is inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books. It follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and must learn that with great powers comes great responsibility.
The production features creative consultation by Philip William McKinley, original direction by Julie Taymor, music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge, and book co-written by Taymor, Glen Berger, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
