Discount Tickets to Spiderman Turn Off the Dark on Broadway
Spider-Man on Broadway
Drawing from over forty years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, this SPIDER-MAN musical on Broadway spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. Spider-Man the musical tells an origin story both recognizable and unexpected--yielding new characters as well as familiar faces--until a final surprising confrontation casts a startling new light on this hero’s journey.
Directed by Tony Award-winner Julie Taymor with 22-time Grammy Award-winning Bono and The Edge (of U2) creating new music and lyrics, SPIDER-MAN is written by Julie Taymor and Glen Berger.

Spiderman Turn Off the Dark is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
Spider-Man the musical, with music by U2 and direction by Julie Taymor, follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down—literally—when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character.

Age Everyone (including children of all ages) must have a ticket for entry. Recommended for ages 8 and older. No one under 4 will be admitted. Ages 4-7 years to be approved by Management on site at time of entry.
Our Recommendation Judged purely as a musical theater piece, Spider-Man is a rather mediocre one. But, as theatrical entertainment, the show is an absolute blast. The comic book-inspired set and costume design is visually impressive and creatively rendered, and the flying and aerial choreography is stunning.
