Behind the Scenes of an S.N.L. Set Change

From Esquire   T.V. viewers of the long-running, variety show Saturday Night Live rarely ever get a behind-the-scenes look at the speed and stress of what goes in to all of those set changes in that tiny, 8H Studio at 30 Rockefeller Center. The main stage where the guest host walks out usually serves as the same stage for the cold opening sketch. That said, elaborate sets, lighting and characters have to be quickly moved out of the way as we, at home, watch the opening credits.  All this is done with over a dozen crew, in a tight space in the matter of just over a minute before the guest host is introduced.  That's damn impressive. Take a look below.
