Superman’s 1966 Musical Returns To The Stage At New York’s City Center

Comic book fans are a pretty opinionated bunch, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that aside from comics, the best medium for a superhero story is definitely the broadway musical. If there’s any doubt to that, one only needs to look to the classic It’s A Bird… It’s A Plane… It’s Superman, which tells the story of the Man of Steel’s battle against a menacing (non-Luthor) scientist through song and dance.

Originally performed in 1966, It’s Superman returns to the stage this week in a new production at New York’s City Center. Check out a few songs from the rehearsal after the cut, featuring Alli Mauzey as Sydney, Jenny Powers as Lois Lane, and Edward Watts as Clark Kent. I’m not sure who the guy in the third number is, though. He looks sort of like Watts, but without glasses.

I don’t want to get anyone too excited, but the penultimate number involves Superman fighting a team of evil acrobats while singing a song called “Pow! Bam! Zonk!” 1966, y’all.

The City Center’s revival opens tonight, March 20, and continues with seven performances until March 24. For more information, check the City Center’s website, and if you’re in New York, use the code “COMICS” to get 20% off your ticket.
