Jake Epstein, star of TV's "Degrassi: The Next Generation," will make his Broadway debut in "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," producers said.
Epstein will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man during Saturday and Sunday matinee performances, beginning Dec. 8 at the Foxwoods Theatre.
Matthew James Thomas, the original alternate for star Reeve Carney, played his final performance Nov. 11.
"Spider-Man may be an iconic American hero, but there is a lot of Canadian pride on our production team and we are delighted to welcome another Canuck into the fold," producer Michael Cohl said in a statement Friday.
