John Mulaney Brings Broadway Show Tunes to a Bodega Bathroom in Saturday Night Live Sketch | Playbill

John Mulaney, a noted Broadway enthusiast who appeared on the Great White Way himself in Oh, Hello, didn’t pass up the chance to sing show tunes during his Saturday Night Live hosting stint March 2. In fact, one of the episode’s sketches led to a musical spectacle in an unlikely locale: a bodega bathroom.
What starts off as a customer (Pete Davidson) asking the bodega owner (Mulaney) for the bathroom key spirals into a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory -inspired tale, replete with a singing bodega cat (Kenan Thompson), cockroaches, an Audrey II-esque toilet seat, and a Virgin Mary votive candle-turned-Grizabella—all of whom ultimately convene to sing a new take on Rent ‘s “Seasons of Love
Check out the sketch in the clip above.
This isn’t even the first time this week Mulaney has theatre theatre fans to show tunes and Broadway references on the small screen. The comedian wrote IFC’s recent Documentary Now! episode Original Cast Album: Co-op , a mockumentary sending up the film Original Cast Album: Company. He also starred as the Simon Sawyer, a (loving) parody of a ’70s-era Stephen Sondheim .
