Faulkenberry lands star role in Spider-Man musical

Bermuda’s own Rebecca Faulkenberry takes on a new stage role this month family members describe it as a major coup for the 26-year-old actress.

She joins the Broadway rock musical ‘Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark’, which has performed well at the box office despite highly-publicised injuries to cast, and technical glitches.

“She’s going to be Spider-Man’s girlfriend,” said her mother Mary.

Ms Faulkenberry will take on the role of the popular comic book character’s long-time girlfriend, Mary Jane Watson.

She continued: “It’s the second-biggest role in the show. She’s gone from doing the absolute smallest of Broadway roles to playing in one of the largest.”

No stranger to Broadway, Ms Faulkenberry most recently starred in the successful musical, ‘Rock of Ages’.

She is six years older than Jennifer Damiano, the actress she replaces. The switch is expected to bring more experience to the show’s cast.

Star role: Rebecca Faulkenberry has secured her biggest Broadway role to date, playing the girlfriend of Spider-Man in the stage musical.
