As hundreds of theatre-goers can attest, "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman" was an exciting show, and its star, Bob Holiday, deeply touched the lives of many. Staff here at SupermanBobHoliday.com are quite excited about the revised script now being staged at the Dallas Theater Center.
From the producers:
With music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Lee Adams, and original book by David Newman and Robert Benton, the musical based upon the comic strip “SUPERMAN” and originally directed by Harold Prince, DTC’s production features a revised book by comic book writer and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. DTC Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty directs with choreography by DTC Associate Artist Joel Ferrell.
“It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…It’s Superman is a heart-felt story about America’s greatest superhero,” says Moriarty. “Featuring a stellar cast and fresh material from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Superman is both an action-based superhero story and a classic romantic musical comedy for audiences of all ages. It's the once-in-a-lifetime, not-to-be-missed event of the summer,” says Moriarty.
Web Hostess Toni Collins agrees. Making the trek from California to Texas, she will be reviewing this new show for all Bob Holiday fans. Stay tuned for more updates.
The newly revised show It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman ran from June 18 through July 25, 2010.
