I had my family in town for my wedding and we all decided to go see Spider Man. I really enjoyed all of the acrobatics and we seemed to all really enjoy the ambiance of the theater. I would highly recommend seeing this show while in New York.

Purchased discount tickets at red stairs Times Square....having a 16yr old boy with us had to kind of pick something he wouldn't mind. It was okay not on Lion King or Wicked standards wouldn't have paid for full price tickets. Anyone with small kids would love as Spiderman flies throughout the sky.

First and foremost, the Spiderman Broadway show is no longer in New York City. The last shows were held in December of 2013. With that said, on to the show! We arrived to the show approximately 30 minutes before it started, and it was a packed house. Everyone was either seated or going to their seats. We sat under the... More

So much hype for so little content. If you want to see a Broadway show pick another, if you want to see flying go to a Cirque show. The kids will love it. I will say the WO an who p,days Arachne is amazing vocally but that was the only highlight for me.

I watched the spectacle at novembro/2013. There are several boring scenes with songs that make us sleep. There on the other hand the wonderful scenes of flights Spiderman. If you have to decide for this show and another, I am in doubt in recommending this.

It's different from the typical Broadway shows and the stunts were spectacular! Loved it! I recommend getting good seats so view of the stage will not be blocked. Expect lots of "flying around" by Spiderman.

We purchased half price tickets, on the day and we had a blast. We didn't know what to see, but I had heard one review that said it was suitable for kids (boys 8 and 12). So off we went and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. At first I thought what have I done the boys will kill me all... More

It did not start too well. During the first flight They had serious technical difficulties and Spiderman stay hanging from the ceiling. After they fixed it, it was a different story. The techniques to make him fly was fantastic. Our sons love it. It was great for the kids to see their first Broadway show.

The flying (of Spider-Man) through the air makes this show. Great set design and music (U2!!!!). Fun show for all ages.
