Definitely entertaining. Pretty silly, but it's supposed to be as it is based on a comic book. The ballads were lovely, the rest of the music was okay. Overall, a fun show.

Acoustics are awful; story line is very confusing, and made more so because much of the dialogue is not clear because of sound system. Costumes for the various creatures are best part of show. If one wants to see people flying through the air,...continued

Sad to say that so much entertainment is aimed toward children,and not very bright children at that. Yes, the underlying material is a comic book, and yes, this is Julie Traymor with her oversize costumes, but did they have to dumb it down so much...continued

This was a show like no other. I've been waiting for the perfect time to see it, yesterday was that day. Thanks to GOLDSTAR it was also the perfect price.

Spiderman Turn Off The Dark was every bit as bad as the legends said. It's a total mystery to me where they dumped $75 million, as the sets, costumes, and special effects all looked equal to or worse than what you would find in a Disneyworld stage...continued

What makes this is the acrobatics; mostly Spiderman flying around the theater. Story is OK, music is OK, only seats in the mezzanine before the overhang get fullview of the acrobatics. If you can't get that then flying circle is probably next...continued

It was a great show. Very entertaining. Always been a "Spiderman" fan and the story was very close to the comic book version. Seats were fantastic! Love the interaction with the audience!

Spider-man on Broadway was some treat to watch! It's amazing how they pulled it off and luckily for myself and my husband there weren't any mishaps in the performance we went to watch. When we arrived at the theatre it was about a quarter to 8...continued

The show started off slow but it picked up he pace, the arials were cool, now I see why they have been having problems, lots of arials! The costumes were well thought out and the multimedia use was really cool and you can see where the money went....continued

The sets & special effects were great, music was ok, lead actor that played Spiderman was great. The performance that I attended had an understudy for Mary Jane.

You might as well see what everyone is talking about - what other show generated this much controversy and hype? I took my 80 year-old father, sister and BIL, and 2 girls (12 and 14). We didn't expect much, especially after reading the reviews. ...continued
