Mayor Bloomberg Spoofs Spider-Man at Annual Inner Circle Evening

News   Mayor Bloomberg Spoofs Spider-Man at Annual Inner Circle Evening
At the March 27 Inner Circle Comedy Show, which is presented each year by City Hall reporters, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg donned Spiderman garb.

Poking fun at the troubles the $65 million musical Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark has faced, Bloomberg experienced technical difficulties as he attempted to fly over the stage, according to The New York Post.

While hovering over the stage, the Mayor joked, "Will I be up here for long?"

A stagehand replied, "No. We just have to issue an RFP, get three bona-fide bids, go before the community board, submit a ULURP application, and do an environmental-impact statement -- and we'll have you down and you can grab the train home."

"That's not too bad," Bloomberg said. "From the completed Moynihan Station," added the stagehand.

Following numerous technical difficulties, several injuries and the dismissal of its co-creator and director, Julie Taymor, from day-to-day duties, Spider-Man is currently scheduled to officially open at the Foxwoods Theatre June 14, more than six months after it began previews in November 2010.
