“Spider Man” leads rehearsing, while understudies go on with the show

If you have tickets to “Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” you will see a performance put on by the understudies for “Peter Parker”, “Mary Jane” and “Green Goblin”, while the leads are learning new material, songs and technical changes for the show over the next two weeks.

“Peter Parker” understudy Matthew James Thomas has received very good reviews. What the future holds for the character of “Arachne”, played by an injured T.V. Carpio, is still unclear. Understudy America Olivo has been filling in, but word has leaked that cuts are being made to that role when the show reopens after the three and a half week hiatus, scheduled to begin April 17th.

A source  reports, “The whole second act has been rewritten and there are new songs. The show closes down after the April 17th performance, for three and a half weeks. The whole first week, I’m told, is just to make technical changes without the actors.”

Creator Julie Taymor has not yet signed a deal with producers of the show and may still have the power to veto any changes being made without her consent.
