Taking advantage of half-price tickets on the day of performance, I bought a couple tickets to Spider-Man on a whim. I usually research the reviews before a major purchase, but this time I was impulsive. I was leery and ready to leave at intermission if I didn't like it, but I have to admit the play was surprisingly good. The music (written by Bono) was contemporary and catchy. The lyrics were a little cheesy, but it is a superhero's love story. The acrobatics and sets make this a memorable experience. Spiderman soars overhead to the delight of the audience. A word of warning to parents of young children: Some moments might be considered dark and scary. In fact, the family behind us had to leave because their young son kept crying. I'm sure that's the exception since most children were cheering and applauding. The musical has broad appeal to the young and not-so-young.
