Deets: According to the press release, launching one of New York City’s most iconic brands, Premier On 5th kicks off with “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition,” celebrating the NBC program’s 40-year history as America’s comedic, musical, political and social pulse. In the Exhibition, SNL fans will be able to experience the excitement of the live show, which was the brainchild of writer/producer Lorne Michaels and became a cultural phenomenon within weeks of its debut on October 11, 1975. “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition” reveals the intense creative process that unfolds to bring each episode of offbeat humor, edgy political satire and hip musical performances into millions of living rooms every Saturday night.
“In addition to connecting visitors with the backstory of the show and affording an opportunity to relive the show’s most laughable moments and sketches, “Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition” goes even further to give people a sense of what it’s like to be part of the creative team, and the frenetic schedule and pace that is involved with each weekly episode,” said Mark Lach, Creative Director of Premier Exhibitions. “It can look so effortless on TV, but this exhibition illustrates that a lot of hard work and preparation undoubtedly goes into each and every laugh.”
