For anyone who’s ever wanted to take a dip in James Brown’s celebrity hot tub or hang in the basement with Wayne and Garth, this may be the closest thing to it.
In advance of its 40th anniversary, “Saturday Night Live” is partnering with Premier to create “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition,” a museum-like experience promising fans some behind-the-scenes experiences of one of NBC’s longest-running series, including original scripts, set pieces, props, costumes, masks and interactive elements of favorite sketches through the years.
The exhibit, in partnership with Broadway Video, will debut at the Premier exhibition center in New York this spring. It’s not the only anniversary celebration planned, as NBC will air a three-hour 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15 (even though the first episode of the sketch show aired on October 11, 1975).
Though a specific opening date has not been set for “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition,” pre-sale ticket sale opportunities are available at the exhibit’s website.
