When it began previews in November 2010, the Broadway hit musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, was the butt of jokes on SNL and it was bashed by the critics. After closing for several months last spring for a major overhaul, the show reopened and is now the weekly highest grossing show on Broadway. Recently, ‘Turn Off the Dark’ launched an app for Android and iOS devices and added a special feature just in time for Valentine’s Day! Find out more after the break.
The Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark App, by Mobile Roadie, lets you explore the show on the go. The app has a lot of features including production photos, video clips and now a special Valentine’s Day card maker! Using the Photocard feature of the app, you can create custom Valentine’s Day cards to share with that special someone and/or friends. There are also four basic styles to choose from. You may also use a frame where you can “kiss” Spidey in the upside-down pose, made famous in Sam Raimi’s 2002 movie, Spider-Man (which the musical takes some cues from).
If you don’t have an iOS or Android device, don’t worry, the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark fan page will have the cards available so you can share them with your friends on Facebook.
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is now playing on Broadway at the Foxwoods Theatre!
