Matt Cavenaugh Joins Spidey-Themed LAW & ORDER

Broadway World, 5.9.11

As previously reported by BroadwayWorld, Law & Order: Criminal Intent will tackle the troubled Broadway musical SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK in an upcoming episode, and Broadway veteran Matt Cavenaugh will join previously announced Cynthia Nixon to star in it. Cavenaugh will lay understudy, Brice Calder.

The story will focus on a musical called "Icarus," which detectives begin investigating when a stunt gone wrong leads to one of the actor's death. Suspects include a "high-strung and larger than life" director, which seems to possible be modeled after SPIDER-MAN's one-time director Julie Taymor. The episode will also features a bisexual rock-star composer named "Arno." (U2 front-man Bono is responsible for the music in SPIDER-MAN.)

Nixon has appeared as Juliet in The Public's Romeo and Juliet, Harper Pitt in Angels in America on Broadway and The Illusion Off-Broadway. Nixon was most recently seen onstage as in Lisa Loomer's Distracted, for which she received a Drama League nomination. Prior to that, she preformed the title role of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. In 2006, she completed a successful run in David Lindsay-Abair's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rabbit Hole, for which she won the Tony Award for Best Actress, as well as earned a Drama League nomination and an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination.
