The Daily Planet 2003

    Bob Holiday, who is best known for his role as the Man of Steel on Broadway in the play "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman", will be making his first appearance at the celebration and his first anywhere as a former Superman.
    Holiday has also made many appearances on television and movies.
    "Having played Superman was a special and lasting honor for me," Holiday said in a press release.

    "People still remember this show and tell me how much they enjoyed it. It's deeply rewarding because I have always been a Superman fan," he said.
    In addition to signing autographs and answering questions from the audience with the rest of the celebrities on Saturday, Holiday will present "The Bob Holiday Show" at Harrah's Theater on Friday at 6 p.m.

    He will perform several songs from his popular nightclub act, reminisce about his experiences flying and singing on the Broadway stage as Superman and do a number from the musical.
     In addition, he will sign copies of his new book, Superman on Broadway [co-written with Chuck Harter], which will be available at the Celebration, as well as other unique souvenir items, including CDs and the original cast album.
