September 2, 2014: Total Film Magazine on the Dawn of DC MoviesPrint

Total Film #224 Issue #224 of Total Film magazine features "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" photos of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the cover, with an interior article titled "The Dawn of DC".

The six page article discusses all three characters, while examining the possible characters who will make up the Justice League in a film about DC's greatest superheroes.

In regards to Henry Cavill as Superman the article says, "The Man of Steel has been a member of the Justice League of America ever since they first teamed up in 1960 to defeat alien starfish Starro the Conqueror (The Brave And The Bold #28), even if he was too busy in outer spase to assist on that occasion. But will he be its leader in Zack Snyder's film?" Total Film asks. "Not if Batman has anything to do with it..."

You'll find the article in the October issue of Total Film magazine.

September 1, 2014: Superman Musical Comes to Sydney, AustraliaPrint

Neglected Musicals in association with Hayes Theatre Co. will present their stage production of the 1966 Broadway musical "It's a bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman!" in Sydney, Australia on October 1.

Superman Musical

    Starring Leigh Archer, Tim Dal Cortivo, Rebecca Matheson, Lucy Maunder, Elise McCann, Matt McFarlan and Kurt Phelan.

    Directed by Stuart Maunder this 1966 Broadway Musical is the classic battle between good and evil by one of the comic world's most renowned superhero's, Superman.

    Neglected Musicals presents musical theatre that has never, or rarely been seen in Australia. Neglected Musicals presents a reading of a chosen show with scripts in hand, with the musical numbers sung through, after only one days rehearsal.

    "As a young director I idolized Hal Prince, as an old director I still do," said Stuart Maunder. "When I read that as a young stage manager/producer, Prince had decided to cut his directing chops on It's a Bird, it's a Plane, it's Superman, this young stage manager/producer/director knew he to find out more about the show that started a directorial career that includes Cabaret, Evita, Phantom of the Opera, and Sondheim musicals from Company to Merrily We Roll Along. And what did I find: a camp, silly, glorious little musical with enough heart to blow up Krypton. With its quirky score by the creators of Bye Bye Birdie and ridiculous 'Pop Art' book it's ripe for the Neglected Musicals treatment. Who doesn't want to leap buildings at a single bound? And surely any show with a song titled 'Pow! Bang! Zonk!' has to be a winner. And with this glorious cast.... I can't wait."

    The original production of It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Superman was directed by Harold Prince and played at The Alvin Theatre on Broadway from March 29 1966 – July 17 1966. It starred Bob Holiday as Clark Kent, Patricia Marand, Jack Cassidy and Linda Lavin. The musical received three Tony nominations for Best Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Featured Actress in a Musical. With songs including We Need Him, You've Got Possibilities and It's Superman.

    Dr. Abner Sedgewick, an esteemed physician at the Metropolis Institute of Technology, is also a ten-time Nobel Prize loser. Bitter and twisted by his failure, Dr Sedgewick wants to take revenge on the world, by destroying Superman and all the good he represents. Superman must defeat Sedgewick and foil his villainous plans in order to save Metropolis and the world. But this quest is no ordinary task for Superman. This time he not only must save the world, but confront envious co-workers and frustrated love interests, all whilst maintaining his secret identity as Clark Kent. After being pushed to his furthest limits and even questioning his self-purpose, will Superman be able to turn himself around in order to triumph?

"It's a bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman!" will be performed at the Hayes Theatre Co. located at 19 Greenknowe Ave in Potts Point on Monday 6 October at 2pm & 8pm. Tickets cost $38 (plus booking fees). Purchase your tickets at www.hayestheatre.com.au or phone (02) 8065 7337.
