STAGE TUBE: The "Other" SPIDER-MAN Musical in Rehearsal

Veteran humorist and playwright, Justin Moran, launched "Spiderman Smackdown", a guerilla theatre project to write, rehearse, and perform a fully realized musical based on the character Spiderman in under 30 days with a budget of $0. Moran's musical will be the first Spiderman Musical to officially open in New York City.

Moran launched a blog ( and YouTube page to promote the project and to enlist a troupe of volunteer writers, designers and actors. "How important is $65 Million in making good theatre?" jokes Moran. "We're going to develop a story, write a complete musical score and script, design sets and costumes, cast, rehearse, advertise and ultimately mount the production on March 14th, 2011 at the The People's Improv Theatre in NYC."

The musical just released it's latest video - of a rehearsal earlier this week - and BroadwayWorld brings you the clip below!

Moran is collaborating with writer Jon Roufaeal on the story and book, based on the origin story from "the Amazing Spiderman" comic books, and has brought on composers Adam Podd (Pope the Musical, ImgineOcean) and Doug Katsaros (Broadway's Aida; Grammy nominated Footloose; TV's The Tick) to write and arrange the score. Below, view new footage of Jeff Lapine, artistic director of the PIT, leading the cast on a walkthrough of the theater as well as clips from choreography rehearsals.
