We went into this knowing its troubled history, but with two kids, age 11 & 13, we decided we wanted a "Broadway Stage" experience plus something the kids wouldn't moan about watching. And to be fair, there are some spectacular elements to this show. Great stage sets and of course some really cool web swinging. But unfortunately the pacing of the show is just really bad. I shouldn't be dozing off in the middle of a Broadway play based on an action hero such as Spiderman, I shouldn't be dozing off in the middle of music put together by Bono and the Edge. But it happened. For our show, there was no real chemistry between Peter and MJ. Dr. Osborne/Green Goblin was the main acting highlight.
