By David Bar Katz
Directed by Shirley Serotsky
Behind every great superhero is a determined creator. In 1930s America, that creator was usually a young Jewish man with an active imagination. Katz's play illuminates the story of Jerry Siegel–the brains behind Superman's brawn--and the imagined struggle between the creative father and his uber-mensch son. Siegel wrestles to retain control of his famous comic book sensation as America is drawn into WWII.
"In my book, Bar Katz has X-ray vision to see into the human soul, and his powerful play should be required viewing." — City Beat, Cincinnati
