In my 68 years, I've seen the man in the red and blue suit fly all over the place -- not only in comic books, but in a 1950s TV series, many films and, astonishingly, in a big 1966 Broadway musical directed by Hal Prince.
The show was a critics' darling. Get hold of The Best Plays of 1965-66 and you'll find it alongside just one other musical: Kander & Ebb's Cabaret.
And now you can discover it in concert in TMTP's fifth annual co-production with Kent State University's school of theatre and dance with a 2 PM performance on Sunday, April 14th at KSU and a 7:30 PM performance on Monday, April 15th at the Breen Center for the Performing Arts.
I'll kick off the performances with a brief multi-media presentation along with director Terri Kent, but like most Song Is You! concerts, our time together will fly by "faster than a speeding bullet." So here's some additional content to take a deeper dive into the musical before or after you join us.
