It’s no secret that the Broadway show Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been plagued by numerous cast injuries, poor writing, and bad press. Given the $65 million price that went towards production of the show, many are left wondering why so much money was spent in the first place. In the wake of this catastrophic disaster emerged a show that many hope will turn theatre on its head. Created by writer Justin Moran (POPE! The Musical), The Spidey Project: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility is a guerilla-style theatre production that aims to write, rehearse, and perform a Spider-Man-inspired musical within 30 days on a $0 budget. The show is scheduled for two performances on March 14th at the Peoples Improv Theatre in NYC.
The following is an interview with actor and improviser Ryan Nelson, who co-stars in The Spidey Project. Ryan can be seen at The Magnet Theater in New York City in POPE! The Musical, performing musical improvisation with Choral Rage, and playing once a year with the super group Under Your Bed.
