Quotes & Highlights

“Sheer comic-strip adventure served hot and ready” —NY Morning Telegraph


Even though it received highly respectable reviews and ran almost 150 performances on Broadway, this 1966 musical about the “Man of Steel” has never had a west coast revival — until now! The story by the writers of Bonnie & Clyde has Superman facing a mad scientist, an evil newsman and, perhaps worse, a foe for the hand of Lois Lane. The Charles Strouse and Lee Adams score is sophisticated fun (“You’ve Got Possibilities”), and a worthy follow-up to their hit show Bye Bye Birdie.

Book by David Newman and Robert Benton

Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams
