The Spidey Project

The Spidey Project (Zero Dollars - 30 Days - The First Spiderman Musical to Officially Open in NYC) is now online.

As a lifelong fan who hasn't missed Amazing Spider-Man since 1974 I have to say I LOVED it. Spidey wears the silly parody treatment pretty well. He's always been a nutty character and this is fun like we haven't seen before.

The most surprising thing is that amid the breakneck pace and campiness a lot of heart worked its way into the mix. Peter Parker is great! Gwen sings like and angel. Betty Brant is... um... indescribable. The tunes are pretty good too - much better in fact than any of the droning U2 b-sides I've been hearing from Bring on the Dark.

The audio quality of the recording is a bit rough, so I recommend listening with decent headphones and watching in full screen 720p.

Congrats to the creators and cast. Here's hoping they follow through with their recent threat to make a cast recording.
