Thesp T.V. Carpio has stepped into the role of Arachne, the villain in Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”
Thesp replaces Natalie Mendoza, who suffered a concussion backstage during the production’s first preview performance last month and has not yet completely recovered.
Carpio had previously been cast as Miss Arrow in the Julie Taymor-helmed tuner, and also has played the part of Arachne for several of the performances missed by Mendoza. Alice Lee has signed on to the show to fill the role previously played by Carpio.
Actress’ official stint in the part of Arachne begins tonight.
Carpio’s past credits include Taymor’s 2007 feature “Across the Universe.” She’s also logged TV roles on “Law and Order” and ABC’s upcoming drama “Body of Proof.”
