All Star Productions Presents IT'S A BIRD...IT'S A PLANE...IT'S SUPERMAN, Now thru 22 March
All Star Productions have announced their first show of 2014: IT'S A BIRD... IT'S A PLANE...IT'S SUPERMAN, the UK premiere, with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Lee Adams, and a book by David Newman and Robert Benton.
IT'S A BIRD... IT'S A PLANE... IT'S SUPERMAN (based on the Comic Strip SUPERMAN) is the tale of Superman's efforts to defeat the vengeful Dr. Abner Sedgwick, a ten-time Nobel Prize-losing scientist, who seeks to destroy the world's symbol of good. Superman also comes into romantic conflict with Max Mencken, a columnist for the Daily Planet newspaper who is intent on revealing Superman's true identity, as he resents Lois Lane's attraction to Superman.
The dazzling score is by Charles Strouse (Annie) and Lee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie) and has a book by David Newman & Robert Benton who would go on to write the screenplays for Bonnie & Clyde and several of the Superman movies.
