The Original Cast Recording is DONE!!

Hey all you beautiful and devoted Spidey fans!  

The highly anticipated (and almost 2 years late) cast-recording of The Spidey Project is finally here.  A quick re-cap for those of you who don’t know…

The Spidey Project was the FIRST theatrical Spider-Man musical to have opened in NYC. In the name of truth and justice, we put together a dream team (volunteers, all) of creatives, actors, techies, musicians, etc., etc. to conceive, write, rehearse, produce, and finally mount a fully realized web-slinger comic-book musical-parody (full of hyphenation) in just 30 days – for ZERO dollars.  This was in response to the Broadway fiasco with its delayed openings, cast injuries, and 75+ million dollar budget. The general idea being that maybe with all that bloat they missed the point of theatre and Spider-Man.  So our fearless leader, Justin Moran (co-author and director), put out a Youtube call to the world that stated his goal, with only 30 days to make it happen, in order to beat Turn Off the Dark’s slated opening night with our own opening night, one day earlier.  The world responded with hundreds of excited participants and we quickly went to work.

Doug Katsaros and Adam Podd set to work on a world-class score, Justin Moran and Jon Roufaeal hammered together a funny, energetic and tight-as-hell script, and the rest is (internet) history.

We're hard at work right now on getting the album up on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify so you can all download it for free, put it on your phones, and listen to it at the gym; and we'll let you know as soon as it's ready, but until then, click the image below to listen to complete score in all of its glory.

For this amazing album Adam Podd was our producer and arranger, and his good friend/colleague Mark Goodell was our mixing engineer.
