Marvel has actually partnered with Samuel French to make 3 officially certified Marvel plays available for efficiencies. It’s a program called “Marvel Spotlight” and it’s beginning with three plays:
- Squirrel Lady Goes to College: A Squirrel Girl Play by Karen Zacarías
- Hammered: A Thor & Loki Play by Christian Borle
- Mirror of Most Value: A Ms. Marvel Play by Masi Asare
These are one-act plays “established for teenagers” that “check out the human beings behind your favorite Super Heroes as they balance mastering their newly found powers while dealing with the real-world obstacles of young grownups.” Here’s a screencap from the main website:
Given that these are official, there are certifying fees involved. If you wish to perform just one play, it costs $75 per performance. If you wish to do 2 or more plays, it’s $125 per performance. Then there are add-ons, like the capability to utilize the Marvel logo on your posters and programs ($50 for one play, $75 for 2 or more), picturesque backgrounds ($300 and up), video licenses ($75 and up), and more. (You can likewise buy the scripts just to read them.) More information– like comprehensive plot descriptions, specifics on how to accredit the plays, pointers on achieving a Marvel appearance, and more– can be found on the official website: MarvelSpotlightPlays.com
I have not read the plays, so it’s impossible to state if they deserve the cash or not– though Marvel is not likely to make this kind of leap without quality material to back it up, and offered the popularity of all things Marvel, many performance groups will most likely be able to draw a crowd based upon name recognition alone. I know I ‘d pay to see Ms. Marvel, Thor and Loki, and Squirrel Woman in a remarkable theater near me.
