Another sold out, standing-room-only crowd swung into the Foxwoods Theatre on Wednesday night for the second-ever preview performance of SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark. People hoping to score a last minute seat were roaming 42nd Street searching for scalpers, asking if anyone on line had an extra ticket to sell.
Spotted among the crowd were Emmy-winner Jane Seymour and her daughter. Tony-winner Katie Finneran was also in attendance, and was overheard telling a friend at intermission, “When Spider-Man started flying, I cried!”
Ms. Finneran wasn’t the only audience-member to have a visceral reaction to the aerial stunts. A woman in the balcony, seemingly unable to control herself, yelled out, “Oh no! … YAY!,” during one particularly eye-popping moment.
Outside the theater, after the show, news cameras and radio reporters stood poised to capture audience reactions. One excited fan (dressed almost entirely in Spidey paraphernalia) was having a tough time expressing his emotions to a reporter, leaving it at, “Whoa – that was really intense.”
