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.

Reuniting the team behind 2012’s Award Winning Flora the Red Menace, All Star Productions are delighted to present this show in the intimate Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre where over the past two years they have fast established a reputation for presenting revivals of rare often neglected works and UK Premieres.
