From the Pulitzer Prize, Tony and Emmy Award-winning composer of Next to Normal (Tom Kitt) and the Tony Award-winning writer of Red (John Logan), Superhero is a deeply human new musical about a fractured family, the mysterious stranger in apartment 4-B, and the unexpected hero who just might save the day. Directed by Jason Moore (The Cher Show, Avenue Q), Superhero made its world premiere in January 2019 at Second Stage Theater.
