SNL Does 'Spider-Man'
Who needs a fat man with a white beard and a penchant for breaking and entering, when you can have a guy in red tights, who can spit web from his fingers and sing showtunes? Because like Santa, the musical "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" is like the gift that keeps on giving.
Most recently, with this little sketch on SNL this past weekend. Adam Samberg hangs upside down as the webbed hero, who assures Seth Meyers that no matter how many actors break some bones (or get a concussion or "(land) in a fire"), the show will go on. After all, "it's a musical...it happens," Samberg says, "Do you know how many people die every year doing ‘Jersey Boys’?”
Julie Taymor couldn't have said it better herself.
