Our family makes a list of things we can do when the crisp fall Chicago weather sets in. This year, our kids are all about live theater. One show that’s on the top of the list for both our 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter is Marvel Universe LIVE! With comic book characters like Spiderman, Hulk, and Iron Man starring in the action-packed show that includes amazing aerial stunts, martial arts and pyrotechnics, we’re hoping our kids will sit still long enough for mom and dad to enjoy the special effects too…just this once!
