I attended the event with my wife and a cousin who was visiting from down under . We all throughly enjoyed the show. At first we thought two and half hours would be hard to tolerate , but once the show started the theme, acrobatics and costumes...continued

So happy I didn't listen to the negative reviews. This show was great. Set design was very well done. My 10 year old loved this. It moves fast. The music was good. In my opinion this play hit on all cylinders. And seats were great.

Don't (totally) listen to the reviewers! My husband and I had Goldstar tickets before the reviews came out. After they did we had the opportunity to cancel as the theater would no longer guarantee the "Flying Circle" location originally promised....continued

The sepcial effects and fly system were amazing. The way the set pieces moved and interacted with each other were the best I have seen on much a large scale.
That being said, the score was ok, the singing was ok, the dancing was ok, the script...continued

Thought it was very good for children would not recommend to adult audience. If you enjoy theater as much as I do you may want to pass on this. Musical score was okay no lasting memories.

Visually beautiful, but the story was disjointed and stymied dramatic tension. Many scenes and numbers fell flat. Most of the performances were fine, but the direction of the actors was weak, especially given the attention paid to the scenic...continued

Wow, what an evening's entertainment with the awesome feats of flying, the unusual and beautiful costumes and the special music. I said WOW out loud several times. Arachne and her weavers blew me away. If the show can be pared down to reduce the...continued

As anxious as we were to see this play, we were equally disappointed. For all the hype, what is essentially needed for this play is a good story line, dynamic music and excitement, all of which it lacks. At points it bordered on boredom and the...continued

I took my nephews as a surprise to this event not expecting much from all the bad press. But to my surprise I LOVED IT. It was exciting, fun, and edgy (pun on the edge intended). I love U2 so the score is classic for fnas of the band. If youa re a...continued

I was sitting in the orchestra far stage left about 8 seats in from the aisle. I had a great view of the stage and the flight lines. But it was hard to hear the actors both talking and singing.CUDOS FOR HAVING A LIVE ORCHESTRA.

It was a blast, and the sets, costumes, and tech were incredible. U2 music wasn't bad either!

It was kind of a disney version of a broadway play. Definitely geared toward a family with young children or a spideman fan.

The seats were great!! 2 aisle seats in the flying circle, they couldn't have been better!! The flying circle is definitely the place to sit - the performers actually perform stunts from there. Parts of the show can get boring and cheesy, but...continued

The songs are unmemorable and the dialogue is trying too hard to be cool. Most of the plot is 2-dimensional and predictable to the point of being unnecessary, which actually isn't such a huge offense since the target audience is children and...continued
