Marvel Universe Live! is a traveling live action arena show designed forÂ superheroes for fans of all ages. Thanks to Marvel for the gift of tickets, I plan to hit the matinee with my family in March.
My youngest is three and a half so I hope we’re ready for all the awesome. Truth be told, I am moreÂ worried about the Spider-Man costume + barely potty-trained child equation than the pyrotechnics andÂ intensityÂ on stage. Yes, we will encourage him to wear hisÂ costume to the show. I like to get my money’s worth out of Halloween investments.
My family will see Marvel Universe LIVE!Â in San Jose, but it is touring all across the country throughout the year and into next. I see dates in Oklahoma, Arizona, Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, and more.Â Find out if it will be in your town and purchase tickets here. Save 25% on your tix with code MOM2.Â (Savings does not apply to VIP or Gold Circle seats. No double discounts.)
What to expect:Â Marvel Universe LIVE! includes an original story, so don’t worry if you and your kids are not caught up on the movies, comics, shows, etc. because OMG that could never happen. The productionÂ brings more than 25 Marvel characters together on one epic quest. (Summary: To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes must band together, including The Avengers ”“ Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor along with Spider-Man and Wolverine. The good guysÂ will encounter some super villains along the way.) Expect performing martial arts, aerial stunts and motocross, explosions and big stunts, but at a “safe” distance away from most audience members,Â like an superchargedÂ acrobatic ice show without the ice.
If you’re wondering if the action is right for your children, you can preview thisÂ 30-second video:
Marvel Universe LIVE! runs for approximately 2 hours, with a 15-minute intermission. If myÂ children get too antsy or the action is too intense, I have been known to pretend aÂ show is over at intermission time. Shh.
