It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman!
The Man of Steel sings! Where? In his 1966 Broadway show featuring a playful Charles StrouseLee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie) score including Youre Got Possibilities, and a wisecracking script by Robert Benton and David Newman, who later penned the first Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve. Superman made his debut, of course, in Depression-era comic stripsthe invention of Clevelanders Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. In this version, our super-hero has his hands full defending Metropolis against all evildoersmost notably Dr. Abner Sedgwick, a vengeful 10-time Nobel Prize loser obsessed with destroying the worlds symbol of goodness. And as usual, Lois Lane is obsessed with the unattainable guy in the red cape. In one number, Strouse & Adamss chorus declares that in this world of cheap sensations and no foundationswe need him! Sound familiar?
