Conan O'Brien's no-budget preview of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

Last night, Conan O'Brien gave his audience a rare treat: a live performance of a pivotal scene from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Broadway's most expensive musical ever. Well ... it was "rare," at any rate.

Because there is nothing you want to see more at 11:00 pm than a dude in Spider-Man jammies firing silly string at a fella in a trenchcoat, while yet another bloke strolls in dressed as Wonder Woman.

Oh, yes. He is Spidey-Spidey and he is mighty-mighty, indeed.
