The Charles Strouse-Lee Adams collaboration premiered at the Alvin (now Neil Simon) Theatre on March 29, 1966. The cast featured Patricia Marand as Lois Lane, Linda Lavin as Sydney, Jack Cassidy as Max Mencken and Bob Holiday as Superman.
The musical received a warm review in the New York Times. Stanley Kauffmann wrote: "How nice it is to go to a purported entertainment and actually be entertained. What a novelty!"
Though the show's critical reception was generally positive, the production failed to find an audience and shuttered after 129 performances.
