San Jose

In 2006, an energetic crew of high school students staged a revival of "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman" in San Jose, CA. Webmaster Toni Collins and her husband attended. Bob Holiday kept telling Toni that he was going to slap on his cape and fly out to see the show. Until the curtain rose, Toni was never quite sure whether or not Bob would be trading that cape for a United Airlines ticket!

In 2007, the Drury Lane Theatre staged a true-to-the-original revival of "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman". The late Barry Freiman, a prolific writer and huge fan of all-things-Superman, attended the show and wrote an in-depth review.

Chicago Revival
