Sesame Street Parodies Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark: “That’s Not Flying, You Just Fell On Me!”

Ask a Muppet

Unless you’ve been living in some kind of internet-free cave for the past year or so, you’ve heard of at least some of the many foibles the mega-budgeted Broadway musical Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark has faced. Injured actors, fired directors, overhauled budgets and story. It’s by far the most expensive Broadway show of all time, and everyone from late night hosts to The New Yorker to two Tony Awards hosts in a row have taken a swing at it. Not to mention every theater geek in the country. Now, Sesame Street, the surprising source of many a hilarious parody, have taken their turn. Let’s hope they don’t feel the wrath of Bono.
