Ye Olde Rose and Crown
by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams
Genre(s): Musical, Comedy

Tickets: £15.00 - £10.00 Ticket Offer - First three performances


Despite premiering on Broadway in 1966, we are delighted to bring you the first UK production of this Sparkling Musical Comedy.

ITíS A BIRDÖ ITíS A PLANEÖ ITíS SUPERMAN (based on the Comic Strip SUPERMAN) is the tale of Supermanís efforts to defeat the vengeful Dr. Abner Sedgwick, a ten-time Nobel Prize-losing scientist, who seeks to destroy the worldís symbol of good. Superman also comes into romantic conflict with Max Mencken, a columnist for the Daily Planet newspaper who is intent on revealing Superman's true identity, as he resents Lois Lane's attraction to Superman.

The dazzling score is by Charles Strouse (Annie) and Lee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie) and has a book by David Newman and Robert Benton who would go on to write the screenplays for Bonnie & Clyde and several of the Superman movies.

ITíS A BIRDÖ ITíS A PLANEÖ ITíS SUPERMAN reunites the Creatives behind 2012's Award Winning production of Flora the Red Menace.
