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.

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.
