All Star Productions’ acclaimed production of IT’S A BIRD… IT’S A PLANE… IT’S SUPERMAN transferred to The Leicester Square Theatre in February 2015 for a limited run! All Star Productions presented the UK Premiere of the show in March 2014 at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre.
The show, which is 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 and Robert Benton who would go on to write the screenplays for Bonnie & Clyde and several of the Superman movies.
