Hey everyone, amid the many fantastic emails I've been receiving from volunteers and supporters there have been a few questions that keep popping up, so I figured it would be easier for me to answer them in one blanket post here instead of a bunch of different emails.
How can I get tickets?
Tickets will be available in the coming weeks from the PIT's website, keep an eye here and we'll let you know just when.
We can confirm that all tickets will be completely FREE! A special thanks to Jeff Lapine and the PIT for waiving all costs to everyone! Since online tickets will probably go fairly quickly, they'll also hold about 20 seats at the door so anyone who can't get tickets online can try there.
Also, the performance date (and ONLY performance date) is Monday, March 14th. Put it in your planners!
Can I play Mary Jane?
Bad news ladies (and some dude with flowing red hair) there is no Mary Jane in this musical. This story pre-dates her a bit.
Can I play Julie Taymor?
Bad news on this front too, there is no character based on her. This musical isn't about her specifically or her production, just a great musical about a hero we all know and love.
Are you comicbook fans?
I used to be a Spider-Man fanboy especially of the cartoon, until I started in on this I hadn't reread the early comics in years... though I did recently play though 'Ultimate Spider-Man' for the Gamecube. My co-author, Jon Roufaeal, is a huge comic nerd and was much more familiar with (and a stickler for) all the details than I was. The result is something we feel is a true homage to the comics, but creative and unique to what we are trying to do.
Are you serious?
There's a hyphen in Spider-Man?
Shh! You want us to get sued!?
Wait… so, is it a parody or not?
Yup! Absolutely. But like we said, it’s not specifically a parody of JT or SM:TOtD; we’d leave that to Forbidden Broadway... if only...
