Second Stage Theater offers a glimpse of its upcoming world premiere of Superhero in a video featuring cast member Kyle McArthur performing "I'll Save the Girl" from the new musical. McArthur, who plays Simon, is accompanied by composer-lyricist Tom Kitt on the piano; watch it above.
Superhero, directed by Jason Moore, will begin performances January 31 in 2ST's Tony Kiser Theater.
Along with newcomer McArthur, the cast will be led by Tony nominees Kate Baldwin and Bryce Pinkham as Charlotte and Jim, respectively. They are joined by Julia Abueva (KPOP) as Rachel, newcomer Jake Levy as Dwayne, Salena Qureshi (Madam Secretary) as Vee, Thom Sesma, recently seen Off-Broadway in the critically acclaimed immersive Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, as Vic, and Nathaniel Stampley (The Color Puprle) as Dean Fulton.
Superhero unites Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kitt (Next to Normal) and Tony-winning writer John Logan (Red), who together tell a new story about a fractured family, a mysterious stranger in apartment 4-B, and an unexpected hero.
The world premiere is set to officially open February 28.
