A super-dedicated twenty one pilots fan launched a project to create a Blurryface musical but just shy of two weeks after its announcement, he’s received a cease and desist order for it.

The fan, Matt Wagner, says he is disappointed about the project coming to an end but is ultimately proud of the community that was built so quickly.

Wagner’s project went public on January 31, but was tested out for a limited audience in New York last summer.

Alright everybody. Announcement time. We’re going public!! My name is Matt and for the last four years I’ve been writing a jukebox musical inspired by the incredible songs of @twentyonepilots This show has been a labor of love but I couldn’t be more proud of what it stands for and how it promotes @tylerrjoseph and @joshuadun message about Staying Alive. But now I need your help. If you like this idea, please share this post to every ToP fan you know and tag the band. Let’s take this project all the way to Tyler and Josh and make it a reality!! Trailer coming later today • • • • #twentyonepilots #blurryface #blurryfacethemusical #banditos #bandito #tylerjoseph #clique #skeletonclique #cliqueart #blurryfacetour #joshdunn #clikkies #jennajoseph #debbyryan #trenchalbum #twentyonepilotsedits #twentyonepilotsfanpage #twentyønepilots #tøpclique #theclique #cliqueartist #tøpmeme #tylerrobertjoseph #twentyonepilotslyrics #blurryfacealbum #tylerjosephedits #tyjø #tylerjøseph

Wanted to give some love to the amazing “proto-production” cast of Blurryface: The Musical. This summer we did a free performance to test out the show in front of a limited audience in New York City and the response was incredible! I had dozens of strangers come up to me afterwards saying how moved they were by the story and that’s when I knew we had something worthwhile on our hands. But it wouldn’t have been possible without all of these exceptional actors: Dylan Clancy: @bendavidfeldman Blurryface: @austinmirsoltani Katie Stone: @itsheatherolsen Jamie Conners: @emilyannbanks Mr. Clancy/The Publisher: Joseph Knipper The musical wouldn’t be what it is today without each of these people’s incredible dedication, input, and artistry! @twentyonepilots @tylerrjoseph @joshuadun • • • • #blurryface #blurryfacethemusical #castphoto #actors #cast #musical #twentyonepilots #bandito #stayalive #theatre #twentyønepilots #tylerjoseph #joshdun #newmusical #showtunes #stayalivefrens #tøpmeme #tøpclique #clique #theclique #skeletonclique #musicaltheater #newshow #cliqueartist

The project is over now though as the trailer is pulled from the internet. The Instagram page is also expected to come down soon. Wagner says he still loves the band though. You can see the final post on the project below.

Hey guys. It finally happened. I have received a cease and desist letter. I’ve been told to take the musicals trailer off the internet and that the project can not continue. Although I am disappointed, I knew this was a possibility from the very beginning and I am okay. More than anything, I am just so so proud of the community that we were able to build in only a week and a half. Almost 3,600 follows is absolutely crazy!! And Josh Dun even liked the video. That’s ridiculous!! All of the incredible DMs and comments I received have truly validated me as a creative and I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned from writing this show and put it toward my next project. If this idea touched you and you want to see what I do next as a creative, then go follow @i_am_mnerva Even though this is the end of Blurryface: The Musical, I’m just happy that this local dreamer was able to take this crazy idea this far. Unfortunately though this account will be shut down in 24 hours. But through it all, I still love Twenty One Pilots. I will always love Twenty One Pilots. Nothing will ever change that. So stay alive my new frens! Thank you for everything 🙂
