There is something delightful, that sort of “fuck it” charm to the idea that Justin Moran, an improv comedian and composer, is attempting to launch his own Spider-Man Broadway show, with the idea that it will open one day before Julie Taymor’s $65million disaster.
“The Spidey Project: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility,” which is to make its debut on March 14 at the Peoples Improv Theater in Manhattan, was born out of how pathetic Taymor’s version of the web-slinger has been.
“Our goal isn’t to tear down Julie Taymor or parody her production,” Mr. Moran told the New York Times. “Our goal is to do what she should have done in the first place, and that’s just make a really good musical.”
The best part is Moran’s attempting to pull off his production for zero dollars. That’s right, the one off show will be done entirely through volunteer effort.
