Peter, Who?

Book and Lyrics by Justin Moran & Jonathan Roufaeal; Music by Doug Katsaros & Adam Podd

Finally, the Spider-Man parody we never asked for!
 
PETER, WHO? tells the story of a nerdy high school senior named Peter, who wants to be special, wants to stop being invisible to the other students, and 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.
 
Running Time: 80 minutes
