Overview
May we present Peter, Who? - the critically acclaimed parody formerly known as THE SPIDEY PROJECT.  Peter, Who? started in the wake of the extended preview performances of a major Broadway musical featuring everyone's favorite spider-based superhero, fabled for its excessive delays, bloating budget, and cast injuries. 

After joking online about “how important is $65 million in making good theatre?” comedian and playwright Justin Moran stated his goal of creating a fully-realized web-slinging musical for $0 in under 30 days.  Did this musical open exactly one day before the (at the time) scheduled opening of the Broadway show, making it the first arachnid-centered musical to officially open in New York City?  Yes.  Yes, it did.  Was that intentional?  Yes.  Yes, it was.

Our lawyer needs you to know this fancy phrase: Peter, Who? is not authorized, sanctioned, licensed or endorsed by Marvel Entertainment, LLC or the Walt Disney Company. 

But also...parody isn't copyright infringement, people.

MTV.com heralded Peter, Who? as "the Spider-Man musical fans deserve!"
Plot
Peter, Who? tells the age-old story of a nerdy high school senior named Peter, who just wants a few simple things: he wants to be special, he wants to stop being invisible to the other students, and he wants to maybe even talk to the girl that sits behind him in chemistry. But after he's bitten by a radioactive spider at a Science Expo, he has to learn how hard being 'special' can be.

Instrumentation
Peter, Who? is written for a punch-packing 5 piece rock band (Pianist/Conductor, Keyboard 2, Electric Bass, Drums, and Electric Guitar). Music difficulty is intermediate/advanced, with heavy doses of fully realized notation for all players, as well as some ad libbed comping in a few different pop/rock genres. The Keyboard 2 book requires an array of orchestral sounds, (sometimes split or layered), as well as classic synths and electric pianos. 

Rehearsal/Performance tracks are available and cover the entire score, including transitions.
