A unique alternative to The Spider-Man Broadway -"Spidermann, A Hastily Constructed Abstract Musical"

Bummed about Broadway's beleaguered Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" shutting down production once again? Still have an insatiable desire to see theater presentation of a web-crawling super hero? The Big Adventure Suggests the Off-Off-Broadway "Spidermann, A Hastily Constructed Abstract Musical" at The Tank Theater

For some off-kilter hilarity in your NYC theater concepts, this "Spidemann"satire was devised, written, and thrown together in less than a month, at 0.0000092% the budget. The original plan was for this show to open and close two days before the bigger bug's Broadway, but a recent delay again makes this even more timely. Rather than an in-your-face parody, this tale creates a brand new mythology while still referencing the original comic book and Broadway debacle. Featuring the characters Peter Parkre, Mary Jane Taymor and Radioactive Steve Winwood...what? 

Three shows only running Sunday, March 13th and Monday March 14th for a mere $5 at The Tank Theater at 45th Street and 9th in Hell's Kitchen,  

The Tank is a great community space that allows artists of all kinds to put on show at little or no charge. Beyond this spectacular, we recommend a trip to see the best in DIY theater. More info at http://www.thetanknyc.org/theater
