‘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.”

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