This play was not what I expected. Spoiler alert: though there is humor, this is ultimately a dark play, exploring both the connection between the Holocaust and the need for invulnerability (whether conscious or unconscious) it engendered in the young Jewish men who became the creators of the various superheroes as well as the theme of what the father-son bond is or is not.
David Deblinger carries the show with a more than capable actng job as Jerry Siegel, Superman's creator, and he is well supported by the cast and production. However, this is a young play and I believe needs some editing. You are repeatedly hit with the thematic material until, at the end, you feel bludgeoned. I felt like saying 'I get the point" long before that.
This production contains brief, modest nudity.
June 21 will be open-captioning night.
