(AP) The first-ever autism-friendly performance of the Broadway hit Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will take off this spring and tickets go on sale Thursday.

The Theatre Development Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides access to live theater, said Wednesday it bought all the tickets for the matinee on April 27 at the Foxwoods Theatre and will offer them at a discount for children and adults on the autism spectrum. Tickets range in price from $35-$80.

The Spider-Man musical will be the fifth show in the fund's autism-friendly program. The first was Disney's The Lion King in October 2011, followed last year with performances of Mary Poppins, a second performance of The Lion King and of ELF: The Musical.
