On Wednesday, I spoke about the importance of the contrarian view.
Well, you can’t get much more contrarian that this.
Enter Justin Moran, who earlier this month issued a challenge to himself and to commercial theater in general when he announced that he would be producing his own version of a Spider-Man musical . . . with a budget of zero dollars.
In the YouTube video below, Justin announced that over a 30 day period, he (and whomever he could drum up for some support – including this talented lad) would write, cast, compose, rehearse and open his Spider-Man . . . before the official opening of the $65 million dollar monster on 42nd St.
He’s vowing to beat ’em on budget and beat ’em on time.
And get this, there won’t be any premium prices for his seats.
Everyone gets in for free.
Although with only one performance at The People’s Improv Theater (which seats about 17.4 very tiny people), the tickets could actually be harder to get than tickets to the actual Spider-Man!
Will he succeed? Will he get a cease & desist? Will it be any good?
But I do know this . . . it sounds like a lot of fun.

Oh, and Justin, if you read this . . . and are looking for some rehearsal space, we’re happy to donate some time to your cause. Anyone who challenges themselves and the system is a winner in our book. Send me an email.
