Spider-Man on Broadway, New York- Travel #41


IMG_9076.JPG

Dear Steemit friends, let me take you into the web-swinging world of Spider-Man on Broadway in New York City. Spider-Man is the world's most well-known superhero. He was created by the late Stan Lee. Spider-Man made his debut in the comic book Amazing Fantasy #15, in August 1962. The bite of an irradiated spider granted unsuspecting high school student Peter Parker super-human powers. Like many superheroes, Spider-Man's origin is steeped in tragedy with the death of his Uncle Ben. Peter used his uncle's death as motivation to evolve into a hero that defends New York City from criminals. He often wears his enemies down with corny jokes and one-liners. Spider-Man has spider like abilities including superhuman strength, incredible agility and flexibility, shoots webs and can cling to most surfaces. He also has amazing reflexes which he calls his spider senses.

I am a huge Marvel fan and with that, a huge Spider-Man fan. I was thrilled to find out there was a Broadway show about Spider-Man. I had to see it and what better place than in his home town of New York City. The show was called Spider-Man: Turn off the dark.

When it comes to theatre productions, two places come to mind, Broadway in New York City and West End in London. This is because they are the pinnacle of success for any stage performer. There are many theatres in New York City, most within walking distance of Times Square on the island of Manhattan. Spider-Man: Turn off the dark was being performed at the Lyric Theatre. The stage adaptation worked perfectly for the story of this web-swinging hero.

Spider-Man swung straight over the audience using his webs. He even had a very cool mid-air fight scene with the main villain, The Green Goblin. The Green Goblin flew over the audience on his glider. The goblin glider is a flying transportation device created by Oscorp. Oscorp is owned by The Green Goblin aka Norman Osborn, father of Harry Osborn, Peter Parker's best-friend.

The show ran for about 2 and a half hours with a standard 30-minute interval. I was captivated. It can be very challenging converting any story into a stage production. The producers and directors of this play did an outstanding job. I, personally, loved the fact that this production did not tour around the world. It was kept solely in New York City. They could have very easily toured and made millions like countless other productions. The reason they did not was because creator Stan lee requested that the show be kept in New York City for pure authenticity. It will be interesting to see if they stay true to that now that Stan has passed.

I often get mistaken for the actress kirsten Dunst. I found that especially so while I was in New York. She played Mary-Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movies. She is Peter Parker's love interest. It is 100% coincidental that I just happen to look like the love interest of one of my favourite characters. In Times Square, there are lots of people dressed up as characters that you can have photographs with. Spider-Man actually approached me for a photo opportunity and we posed together for a few people. There it was, my 15 minutes of fame. The joke runs so deep that my brother Wayne, creator of Spectrum_Economics here on steemit got me a funk pop of Mary-Jane. It just so happened that I had her outfit already in my wardrobe. I guess you may call me MJ.

It was really one of the best Spider-man games I've played in a while, My favourite suit was the black and yellow one. I wish the game had online multi-player, we could have been web-slinging together, how epic would that be?

Sweet a gamer too! Guess I'll have to catch you online sometime. Perhaps some Read Dead 2

dang it, my beer didn't send, lets try !COFFEEA 1
