(CBS) You know your musical's in trouble when Sesame Street is sending it up.

Pictures: "Spider-Man" actor injured

"Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" gets the Muppet treatment in "SpiderMonster, the Musical," which stars Grover as the SpiderMonster (natch) and a big, orange creature as Bono who doesn't help the situation much.

Best line, after Grover, who's supposed to fly, falls on the only patron in the theater: "It's only our 17th opening night, sir."
