IT'S A BIRD...IT'S A PLANE...IT'S SUPERMAN NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: June 18, 2010
Did He Like It?*
A Lost Treasure, a Musical Marvel, Soars Again - Look! Up in the Sky! America's greatest superhero was also the star of one of Broadway's lost musical treasures! Now this mid-'60s miracle, with great songs by the legendary Charles Strouse (Annie) and Lee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie) is part of the Wyly Theatre's historic first season.
In this production the comic book-based musical has a hip updated script by the ingenious young playwright and comic book writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. There will be nothing mild-mannered about this high-voltage revival, when Superman flies in to help Clark Kent and Lois Lane face off against a team of super villains. With singing, dancing, colorful sets and costumes, and a tuneful Broadway score, Superman will be an uplifting end to DTC's 51st season. The Man of Steel promises to sweep Lois Lane - and our audiences - off their feet!
It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman!

"So buoyantly lightweight that it practically floats up, up and away, Dallas Theater Center's extensively and inventively revamped "revisal" of "It's a Bird … It's a Plane … It's Superman!" may be just what it takes to elevate the reputation of a semi-obscure Charles Strouse-Lee Adams musical heretofore best known as a cult-fave Broadway flop. A second-chance staging on the Great White Way may be problematical -- DC Comics reportedly maintains a tight grip on its rights to the Superman mythos -- but this new and improved iteration of the show conceivably could become a regional theater staple."
