It's Really as Bad as They Say It Is
I took my 5 yr. old last Sunday, and I recommend taking small children. There were tons of toddlers, kids and tweens in the audience, and they all seemed to enjoy the show. If youre over 10 yrs. old, youll quickly figure out that the show is REALLY BAD. From cheap, cheesy looking scenery, to an Arachne who cant sing, music that isnt memorable and characters you dont care about, its amazing how bad a product this team of talent produced. The flying takes up 5 mins. of the 2 1/2 hrs., and its not all that thrilling. The best scene is the first and the one with the Chrysler bldg. Spiderman looks like hes in an amateur rehearsal when hes bouncing off the walls of his "room" with a huge black harness around his waist and the stage hands pushing the walls in.
