Spider-Man, Turn Off The Dark

Audiences = 3.9

Running since November 2010
Despite well-publicized technical issues and performance delays, the supersized musical about Marvel's marvelous superhero finally opened on Broadway.

The Broadway production of Spider-Man, Turn Off The Dark closed January 4, 2014. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

"Spider-Man" had a long and difficult road to opening night. Developed by Julie Taymor (director of Disney's mega-hit "The Lion King") and originally scheduled to open January 2010, the show was postponed nearly a year due to financing issues. Then, after an unprecedented 3-month preview period and several additional opening night cancellations, the producers announced that the show would be re-tooled (without Ms. Taymor's participation), and have an additional month of previews.

Broadway critics reviewed (and generally panned) the show at its planned opening in February 2011. Reviews after the official opening of "Spidey 2.0" in June 2011 were a bit better. The Daily News summed it up pretty well, saying it "is more cohesive, streamlined and funnier than before," and the "acrobatic aerial stunts and flying....are dazzling" but it "is still weighed down by so-so songs."

"Spider-Man" offers discounted tickets ($39 for Tues-Thurs, $49 for Fri-Sun) to Armed Services and Military Service Personnel (active, reservists, retired and veteran), police officers, EMS and firefighters - up to 4 seats, up to two weeks in advance, only at the box office, and subject to availability.

Seating Note: This venue has 3 levels - Orchestra, Dress Circle, and Balcony. For this production, the Dress Circle has been renamed the "Flying Circle." Fasten your seat belts!
