The other Spider-Man musical

Sometimes a piece of theater comes around that reaffirms your belief in the artform. "The Spidey Project" might not have a $68 million budget or a score by a Grammy Award-winning rock band or a complex flight rigging system.

And yet, despite this (or, perhaps, on account of it), they managed to create a musical that succeeds at telling a funny and occasionally touching piece of theater far more than the much-delayed Broadway musical. "The Spidey Project" certainly remains truer to the comic book origins with regard to Peter's Uncle Ben and the comic's core philosophy that "with great power comes great responsibility."

Don't believe me? Take a gander at the YouTube clip below.
