In Rehearsal With Choreographer Josh Bergasse, "The Flying Lings" and It's a Bird… It's a Plane… It's Superman

Whether he's choreographing the musical numbers or acting in the show, Josh Bergasse's work is seen weekly on NBC's Broadway drama "Smash." In the City Center Encores! concert production of It's a Bird… It's a Plane… It's Superman, Bergasse is allowed to step outside of his normal bounds as choreographer. In addition to a more traditional approach for numbers like "You've Got Possibilites," "It's Superman" and "It's Super Nice," Bergasse takes on a martial arts based number that introduces a group of deadly acrobats known as The Flying Lings who prepare to battle Superman. Here, Playbill takes an exclusive peek at Bergasse and troupe as they run through the high-flying choreography featuring somersaults, kendo sticks, karate chops and sword thrusts aplenty. For a musical preview of the show, watch here.
