The upcoming Broadway musical SPIDER-MAN Turn Off the Dark, with music and lyrics by Bono and the Edge and featuring direction by Julie Taymor (Across the Universe, The Lion King on Broadway) will be holding open casting calls in major cities across the U.S. beginning next week.
SPIDER-MAN is looking for performers with dynamic rock/pop voices, including those with experience in bands and as solo performers. Regardless of experience, anyone who thinks they might be qualified is encouraged to audition.
The production is looking not only for principals and understudies capable of playing leads Peter Parker and Mary Jane, but also for an unnamed "Lead Female Villain" described as "Sinead O'Connor with a Middle Eastern/Bulgarian/Greek twist."
Auditions will be held in Orlando, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Austin. For more information, check out Spider-Man on Broadway.
