About Super Heroes Who Are Super!
Save The Day Productions signature series, Superheroes Who Are Super!, presented every Second Saturday by Plays & Players, delivers word-for-word staged readings of comic books that at once celebrate and parody the soap operatic qualities of classic comics. Each performance runs approximately one hour and features one or two comic books brought to life with the best in low budget costumes and special effects, witty word play and absurd physical hijinks alike.

Since its inception in 2007 by creator Daniel Student, Superheroes Who Are Super! has performed to sold out audiences of regular theater goers and comic book aficionados alike at its Philadelphia home, Plays & Players Theatre, including a run in the 2009 and 2010 Philly Fringe. Additionally, Superheroes Who Are Super! performed at the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, DC in July, 2010 and is a regular at Atomic Comics on South Street.

"There is a rawness, an intimacy, and an electricity to these performances," says Mr. Student. "The audience has such an absolute love for the material and the actors playing off their energy highlights what live theater is all about - shared joy. Imagine a Batman, a Superman, or a Wolverine you can reach out and touch - its as ridiculous as it is wonderful."

About the March Performances

The Savage She-Hulk #1, "The She-Hulk Lives"
Written by Stan Lee, Penciled by John Buscema, and Inked by Chic Stone
Bruce Banner went to Los Angeles in order to meet up with his cousin Jennifer Walters because she was the last person he could turn to for a hideout. Forced to give her a blood transfusion in an emergency, he inadvertently transforms her into The She-Hulk!... REALLY? He didn't see THAT coming?

The Fantastic Four #275, "The Naked Truth"
Written and Penciled by John Byrne and Inked by Al Gordon
Hilarious story where sleazy publication THE NAKED TRUTH gets ahold of compromising pictures of a TOPLESS She-Hulk, and her battle to stop the issue from making it to the stands! You have to see it to believe it. But mostly you just have to see it.
