The Majestic Theatre
3/14-3/16/2014
Everyone loves comic book superheroes, and you will love this action-packed spoof of the comic book genre complete with hysterical singing superheroes and dancing villains. Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist and create heroes and villains for the comic books he loves so much. As the janitor at Wonder Comics, he anxiously awaits the day that his boss, D.C. Wunderman, will see his drawings and give him the chance to have his superheroes come alive on the printed page. Stanley's heroes come alive, all right - but not on the printed page! In an effort to revive his faltering company, Wunderman had ordered a set of magical pens guaranteed to bring to life any character drawn. When plans go awry and his staff of artists unwittingly create the dreaded super-villain Doctor Shock Clock, it is up to Stanley to save the day with his own superheroes - charismatic but egotistical Star Guy, speedy Triple Time, environmentally correct Blossom and cranky little Wombat Woman! Stanley's heroes battle Shock Clock and his henchmen, the Minutos, only to be saved in the end by the greatest superhero of them all - Eraser Man (aka Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz)!

Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer.
