Carney is Spider-Man on Broadway (and on the Relix Roof)
The Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark staged its first preview performance last night at New York’s Foxwoods Theater. The show—the most expensive in Broadway history—features new music by U2’s Bono and The Edge. As The New York Times reports, the play’s first preview was not without its technical difficulties but still showcases the talents of singer Reeve Carney as Spider-Man (and his alias Peter Parker).
In addition to his work on Broadway, the singer plays in the rock band Carney. The group has toured extensively on the jamband circuit, including a run with Gov’t Mule that yielded many collaborations. The other members of Carney are staying busy as part of the Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark house band. The group also recently played an acoustic set in Relix’s rooftop boiler room. Highlights of the performance are available here.
