Spider-Man: The Musical: The Musical, Original Parody of Turn Off the Dark, Will Fly Into Lincoln

The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company will present Spider-Man: The Musical: The Musical, a musical parody of the much-in-the-news Broadway production of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, Aug. 22-23.

The free performances will be held at 7:30 PM at Cooper Park (corner of 8th and E Streets) in Lincoln, NE.

Here's how the show is billed: "How can a musical be a musical? Well, that's what happens when you write a parody about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the infamous 2011 Broadway show. In this re-imagined parody of the true story, we affectionately poke fun at The Great White Way, adding our own whimsical mythology to the Spider-Man franchise. The story is equal parts inspired by The Producers and Phantom of the Opera, revolving around comically exaggerated versions of the artists involved ( Julie Taymor, Bono, The Edge, and more!) as they struggle to pull together a monumental production, only to discover that there is much more underneath the surface — like, a horrific monster under the floorboards, for instance. As with all Colonel Mustard projects, the show will be performed with a tongue-in-cheek tone and a lo-fi aesthetic, making the most imaginative use of a little bit of money and a LOT of enthusiasm."

Spider-Man: The Musical: The Musical will feature original music and Mustard actors portraying Spider-Man, Julie Taymor, Stan Lee, Bono, Tobey Maguire, The Edge, Glen Berger and more.

The musical was funded through the company's Kickstarter, which can be found here.

Spider-Man will be Colonel Mustard's sixth original full-length musical. Previous parodies and projects include Jurassic Park: The Musical!, Dr. Quinn: The Musical, X Files: The Musical, Gods of the Prairie and Jurassic Park: The Musical: 3D. The Colonel Mustard is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to "living creatively and loving wholeheartedly." The Colonel Mustard's mission is to "bring surprising, inspiring, and free-of-charge entertainment to the city of Lincoln."
