My husband and I were lucky enough to have the orchestra seats on the aisle right where Spiderman and The Green Goblin drop in,,, thrilling to say the least. We love musical theater and this show was more than anything expected. Even though we are veteran theater goers, my husband unfortunately thought that the music was canned except for the lead and bass guitars.... I had noticed the conductor in the video feed behind us, so was able to appreciate the live music. The two guitars on the stage was interesting, but maybe caused a bad impression about the music, and seemed more awkward overall than anything. Maybe for a rock vibe, they could put more instruments in the wing seats.../? We loved the sets, and the very creative comic book feel. As a musical, it is very cool! The dancers, singers, cast and crew did a great job, and we saw preview #5... so, Im sure its getting better and better still!
