Justin_Matthew_Sargent_spider-manJustin Matthew Sargent, best known for playing Drew, the lowly bartender turned rock star in Broadway’s Rock of Ages, has landed the role of Peter Parker / Spider-Man role in Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark.

He’ll play evening performances starting tonight.

Reeve Carney, the original Peter Parker, played his final performance yesterday in order to begin shooting for the new HBO series, Penny Dreadful.

“We looked for our new lead in LA and New York. During Justin’s rehearsals as the alternate Peter Parker/Spider-Man, we realized this is the guy to take over for Reeve. He is one of Broadway’s great rockers,” said producers Michael Cohl and Jere Harris.

The musical features music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge and a book co-written by Julie Taymor, Glen Berger and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, with direction by Ms. Taymor and additional direction by Philip William McKinley.
