With Great Musical Power Comes Great Musical Responsibility

Spider-Man the musical on Broadway Spider-Man the musical on Broadway (Stephen Nessen/WNYC)

“Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” is the most expensive Broadway production in history, and may very well be the most talked about musical in decades. Boasting a $65 million budget, a score by U2’s Bono and the Edge, twenty seven daredevil flying scenes, and direction by Tony award-winner Julie Taymor, it appears to have all the ingredients for success. But the show has also been plagued by a seemingly endless supply of unintended drama: injuries, postponments and more. Tired of it all, and convinced he could deliver a better Spider-Man musical sooner, Justin Moran wrote and produced his own Spider-Man musical.

Justin's musical is called “The Spidey Project: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” for New York audiences. It opens in mid-March, one day earlier than the Broadway show.
