This was my first ever Broadway show and let me just say that you do not need to be a Spider-Man, nor a fan of musicals, to enjoy this! It is absolutely amazing and the special effects are brilliant. Unfortunately, it has now concluded its run on Broadway, however, I read that there are apparently on-going talks to bring the... More

Not your typical! Lots of action happening over your head which is different then most theaters. Thought by buying tickets same day that there would be a better price...same expensive prices charged.

First show for me- decided Spider-Man as I know the story so if I got confused or didn't enjoy it I didn't miss much. I LOVED IT the effects and the acting was amazing, felt like u was was right there. The songs didn't bother me (not a musical fan) was really impressed with the show. The only down fall... More

Spiderman had very enjoyable special effects, although the flying vehicles had to be stopped in mid-flight at the show I saw. Spiderman the musical tells the basic Peter Parker/Spiderman story, with a nice ending, but don't expect a surprise from the story you have probably seen on TV several times by now. The weakness was the music. I like U2's... More

...but this really was incredible. On my first trip to New York I went to see the Phantom of the Opera, which bored me to tears, but Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark blew me away. It is pricey (both the ticket and the food/drink inside), but if you can afford to go, make sure you do.

We say this in 2011 I do not even think it is still running but if it is do not waste your money. It was boring.

My husband is a huge Spder-Man fan and I gave him tickets to see the show with our son for his birthday. They both had a fantastic time. The music and singing were energizing, the effects amazing, and the best part was Spider-Man flying over their heads. The loved their seats and still talk about the show.

We got nice seats and were able to see Spider Man flying very close to our heads. The story is not so spectacular but the acrobatics are awesome. Great visual effects and an interesting show. You may purchase cheaper tickets at Times Square. It's worth seeing it.

The production and effects are great, as is the trapeze acts. But i thought some of the songs were to drawn out and the story a bit slow. The female lead MJ also had an annoying screech of a singing voice! We had one of the seats on the 1st row of the balcony near the landing deck - fantastic... More
