In Rehearsal With It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Superman

From the songwriters of Bye Bye Birdie, It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Superman, a satiric musical look at the DC Comics hero, ran for 129 performances on Broadway in 1966. City Center Encores! brings back the Charles Strouse (music) and Lee Adams (lyrics) musical March 20-24 for a concert version that will keep the swingin' '60s sound and the frisky humor intact. Stars Edward Watts (Superman/Clark Kent) Jenny Powers (Lois Lane) and cast, along with director John Rando and choreographer Joshua Bergasse ("Smash"), met the media to preview three tunes — "It's Superman," "You've Got Possibilities" and "It's Super Nice" — and chat about bringing the campy musical oddity out of obscurity and down to earth. Meet the cast in a Playbill Photo Call.
