...but this really was incredible. On my first trip to New York I went to see the Phantom of the Opera, which bored me to tears, but Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark blew me away. It is pricey (both the ticket and the food/drink inside), but if you can afford to go, make sure you do.

What a show - amazing, amazing, amazing! Spidermen everywhere, great dancing, singing and performing! My first trip to a show on Broadway did not disappoint!

We say this in 2011 I do not even think it is still running but if it is do not waste your money. It was boring.

My husband is a huge Spder-Man fan and I gave him tickets to see the show with our son for his birthday. They both had a fantastic time. The music and singing were energizing, the effects amazing, and the best part was Spider-Man flying over their heads. The loved their seats and still talk about the show.

The production and effects are great, as is the trapeze acts. But i thought some of the songs were to drawn out and the story a bit slow. The female lead MJ also had an annoying screech of a singing voice! We had one of the seats on the 1st row of the balcony near the landing deck - fantastic... More

I had my family in town for my wedding and we all decided to go see Spider Man. I really enjoyed all of the acrobatics and we seemed to all really enjoy the ambiance of the theater. I would highly recommend seeing this show while in New York.

Purchased discount tickets at red stairs Times Square....having a 16yr old boy with us had to kind of pick something he wouldn't mind. It was okay not on Lion King or Wicked standards wouldn't have paid for full price tickets. Anyone with small kids would love as Spiderman flies throughout the sky.

First and foremost, the Spiderman Broadway show is no longer in New York City. The last shows were held in December of 2013. With that said, on to the show! We arrived to the show approximately 30 minutes before it started, and it was a packed house. Everyone was either seated or going to their seats. We sat under the... More

So much hype for so little content. If you want to see a Broadway show pick another, if you want to see flying go to a Cirque show. The kids will love it. I will say the WO an who p,days Arachne is amazing vocally but that was the only highlight for me.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
