Glenn is obsessed with Spider-Man

Glenn goes to a lot of Broadway shows, but he's rarely blown away by a show enough to give an on air review. But on today’s radio show he gave a glowing review for “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark” and declared it to be the best show he has ever seen.

“This is the best show I've ever seen, bar none.  Heads and shoulders above anything else,” Glenn exclaimed on radio.

Glenn seemed to be most impressed by the quality of the production. “They were doing stuff that I've never seen before.  It starts in the first three minutes like Cirque du Soleil and like you see at Disney.  And then it just goes up from there.  The acting, the acrobatic, the physicality of this is, it's athletics.  It's unbelievable.”

Glenn was blown away by the acrobatics of the actors. He described how at one point, Spider-Man jumped from the stage to the balcony and landed right in front of him, before leaping again from balcony to balcony, flying and fighting. “It's so fast and so amazing,” he said. “You never see it coming.”

“I would pay money to sit behind the scenes and just watch the stage hands,” Glenn said, as he was so impressed with the production. “It is wrong for the theater and for the cast to take a bow and not have the stage hands come out and take a bow.”

“The stage is the eight wonder of the world,” he declared. Glenn described how at one point the Chrysler building comes up and Spider-Man jumps off and the stage moves and suddenly you’re hovering over the city as Spider-Man swings from building to building. “You’ve never seen anything like it.”

It is head and shoulders above anything he has seen in over thirty years of going theater.

Glenn was also a big fan of the story. Anyone who knows Spider-Man knows that the character is rooted in personal tragedy and personal responsibility.  “With great power comes great responsibility,” that’s a message that anyone in this country can take home to their families. The show takes the core of the Spider-Man story and makes it accessible to everyone.

Glenn also loved the music, despite the fact that he’s never been a big U2 fan. He said, “This music was written by Bono and the Edge and it is brilliant.  It is the lyrics; it is hit after hit after hit after hit after hit,” adding, “It is unbelievable music.”

Glenn’s only complaint about the show? He’s mad he didn’t invest in it. “They spent $50 million.  It will have to be sold out for, every ticket, for two years to break even.  My problem with this is I didn't invest.  It will run for two decades.”

“I'm telling you, you go buy your ticket.  You buy your ticket now.  If you're thinking about coming to New York.  Because when this thing opens and gets starting to run, you will not be able to get tickets to this for a year.  This is one of those shows.  This is the ‘Phantom’ of the 21st century.  This is history of Broadway being made.”

Glenn, by chance, sat next to the casting director and at the end of the show leaned over and told him, “You, sir, are part of history.”

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.

Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.

Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.

"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
