‘Spider-Man’ issues spoofed by ‘Sesame Street’

By now, most of us are aware that the musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” which premiered (for real) Tuesday, has had some issues getting off the ground. It seems that “Sesame Street” couldn’t resist poking a little fun at Bono’s embattled spectacular with its own show, “SpiderMonster, the Musical.”

In a sneak peak, Grover, who plays the high-flying SpiderMonster, falls from the stage into the lap of the single audience member. “This is only our 17th opening night, sir,” he explains.

Watch the clip below. Then, just for fun, read Post theater critic Peter Mark’s review of “Spider-Man.”
