STAGE TUBE: SPIDER-MAN Saves Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve!
SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark, Broadway's most popular new show, showcased an unprecedented event with Times Square Alliance when they dropped the New Year's Eve ball 30 feet before midnight last night, marking the first time in history the ball has descended before midnight. In an exciting segment shown live in Times Square and on CNN, Spider-Man came to the rescue when The Green Goblin took host Anderson Cooper captive. After the Goblin threatened to drop the ball early to ruin New Year's Eve, Spider-Man raised it back to its original position and stood triumphantly on top of One Times Square. The event featured SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark actors Matthew James Thomas, Patrick Page, Jeb Brown and Christopher Tierney alongside CNN hosts Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. Check it out below!
