Parting Shot: Tony Awards Clown Spider-Man Musical with Neil Patrick Harris [Video]

Sunday night’s 66th annual Tony Awards had a little fun with Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the infamously accident-prone Broadway musical based on the Marvel Comics superhero created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Actor Neil Patrick Harris, who gave voice to Spidey in MTV’s Spider-Man animated series and in the video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, descended from the rafters in a classic wall-crawler pose to make a joke about safety concerns while introducing Angela Lansbury and Chairman of the American Theater Wing, Ted Chapin, who themselves joined in on the ribbing. Watch the video below.

Although it’s best known for the numerous injuries that occurred during its protracted preview period, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was later retooled into something critics found more agreeable and was nominee for Best Scenic Design and Best Costume Design at this year’s Tony Awards.
