'Spider-Man' hangs over the crowd

It's big, it's expensive, it's had more drama off-stage than on, so it's only fitting that "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" would be the subject of a few jokes. But Neil Patrick Harris made it the subject of an entire bit, telling six Spider-Man jokes in 60 seconds. One highlight: "Julie Taymor found out it was over when she woke up to find the head of War Horse in her bed." Later, two cast members from the musical attempted to make it all more enticing by performing a song that didn't require heavy wire-work.
