You guys already know that I am a huge fan of the great white way.
So when I got the opportunity from NY Metro Parents to go to one of Broadway’s most talked about plays Spider-Man Turn off the Dark I didn’t hesitate! Since the show is recommended for kids 6 and up, I took my uncle and my two cousins that came up from Jamaica for the week.
Since they were 15 and 17 they were the perfect age range for the show. I love when out of towners come to the city because it forces me to do things in my own city that I would never do otherwise.
After we ate dinner down the block at BB King’s we walked around for a bit then finally it was time for the show. When we got in the building we were greeted by a live Spider-Man taking photos with kids that were available for purchase during the show.
We had fantastic orchestra seats so we knew we were going to be apart of all the action!
Initially when I heard of the stunts and flying characters of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, I was intrigued usually when you think of Broadway you think of amazing voices, fantastic dialogue and beautiful costumes.
Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark had all of that plus flying characters. There is a strong story line but I’ll be honest, the first time Spider-Man flew directly over my head I let out an audible gasp. I couldn’t believe the ease at which these stuntmen were flying and leaping from balcony to stage and everywhere in between!
The show ended in a really spectacular way (I won’t spoil it for you) and we made our way home. It really was a great story, and the cast was phenomenal. I would stick to the guidelines of 6 and up as there was some mild violence and loud pops that might scare kids younger than 6.
