We went to see the Marvel Universe Live! Show at the Patriot Center on Friday evening, September 12th.
The show was fabulous! The plot was simple, but kept the interest of adults and children alike. My boys are 8 and 5 years old, so I was a bit concerned that the complexity of the plot – as narrated by Jarvis, Iron Man’s computer system – would be over their heads. My worries were unfounded, though; the action was fast-paced, the plot well-explained and easy to follow, and seeing their favorite Marvel characters come to life right in front of their eyes was simply amazing.
My husband and I were thoroughly engrossed in the story, as well!
My 5 year old son kept his hands over his ears, as the show was pretty loud. The characters were lip-syncing and their voices boomed out over the microphone system, and there were periodic loud explosions – complete with fireworks! – to convey the intensity of the battle scenes.Not too scary for 5 year olds, but pretty intense nonetheless.
Many stunts were performed, including Captain America riding a motorcycle over jumps –and even doing a back flip on his motorcycle, which was extremely impressive! The fight scenes between the good guys and the bad guys were pretty realistic –punches thrown and many acrobatics performed. Overall, my whole family loved the show, and seeing Hulk, Thor, Spiderman, Iron Man, and Wolverine in person was an experience we will never forget.
