I have to admit the first act started very slowly. I was more than a little worried since I had brought my 15 and 17 year old children to their first "Broadway" musical and it felt like it was going to be a dud. Fortunately...More

Spider-man on Broadway is definitely one of the best Broadway plays on the strip. It has a lot of high-flying action and thrill! And the acting is fononamle! Most definitely going back to see it again!

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
