The special effects were great and it made up for the parts that were a little boring. Our seats were fantastic - try to get tickets for flying circle it was the best.

Absolutely fantastic! Don't miss this one! Seats could not have been better! Broadway has never offered ANYTHING as spectacular as this. Sets, effects were magnificent. Music and dancing were wonderful and the voices were phenomenal! Loved...continued

The plot and story line are a bit odd, but I think that the special effects make up for it. Like some thigns in New York, this is an experience you just can't get anywhere else. For that reason alone it may be worth going. The costumes, music...continued

Firstly, the tickets are designated flying circle but we were in the back row of the main floor and missed most of the flying. Secondly, the show is only frustrating. I kept wanting it to be good, and every once in a while it was but mostly it was...continued

The writing was terrible. I expected better music since Bono and The Edge were involved. The songs were pedestrian at best. The acting was marginal. The investors of this play certianly wasted their money.

The special effects were really good HOWEVER the songs were not memorable at all and, at times, hokey... and this is coming from a U2 fan! The acting was not as high quality as I expected for such a show and the singing was minimally ok. Glad I...continued

I've been to many broadway shows but this one did not cut it form. Now, the person playing MJ was the understudy, which I loathed. And I do not know if the original cst member is any better, but the production just made her sing too much, I felt...continued

The Flying Circle seat was great; Spiderman landed in front of me several times after he took flight. The songs by Bono & the Edge were mediocre at best; the only one that I can still remember is "A Freak Like Me". Reed Carney (Spiderman) doesn't...continued

The stunts are impressive and the intricate sets are quite clever. This production was very entertaining and flowed surprisingly smoothly without any major problems.

However, beware of Act 2. My advice is they should cut it completely. The...continued

Overall, it was a good experience and the sets, costumes, and theatrical effects were top notch. We got great seats through GoldStar. As far as the plot, the first half was better/more exciting that the second half and the music was better in the...continued

This was one of the best shows I have seen on broadway. Spiderman was alive in the air just like in the movie and comics. Great job

Dark, obscure, didn't like the music, nothing about it.

Some 4 to 5 families with children between 5 and 8 crying outside in the main lobby. Some people leaving during the intermission.

Not my cup of tea, not what I expected from a Broadway...continued

The NY Times review that was released yesterday pretty much sums it up. There were some interesting performances (Green Goblin was by far the most interesting and well played character of the show), but you could not see where the $65 million...continued

Let me begin my saying the seats were amazing. Our seats were in the flying circle, second row, center seats...you could not ask for better seats in the theater. The set was amazing, the costumes were beautiful, and the set was well designed. ...continued
