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.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman #34

Scheduled to arrive in stores: August 27, 2014

Cover date: October 2014

"The Men of Tomorrow" - Chapter Three: "Ulysses"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: John Romita Jr.
Inker: Klaus Janson
Covers: John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson & Laura Martin

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    What's being delivered by Geoff Johns, John Romita Jr., and Klaus Janson is fast becoming predictable. That doesn't mean it isn't fun, or well written, just that it doesn't offer anything unexpected or thrilling. The parallels between Superman and Ulysses are thick and layered but at the same time we are now starting to see how different they are. I'm not sure they will stay friends much longer to be honest. Their meeting with the Machinist is a dull one and I'm kind of disappointed that we are just offered a variation on The Tinkerer as 'the big bad' in this chapter and the end to their fight is very predictable but also the clearest sign of how different they are.

"Continuity" - Part 1

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Ig Guara
Inker: JP Mayer
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    "Chaos" as a story was in name and execution exactly that. It started off strong, however as the story progressed it began to feel like more of a lengthy prologue rather than a story in itself. Then we have chapter one of "Continuity" and it all makes sense! Would this chapter have the same impact without "Chaos"?

    "Chaos" left dozens of question and I'll be honest, I was expecting a little recap and a whole lot of explanation. Did we get that? No, not even editorial boxes to tell you what happened. This is very unfortunate as this story is clearly a part of the "Chaos" storyline and as a jumping on point it doesn't deliver because nothing makes sense unless you read the previous story.

August 29, 2014: Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on Set in MichiganPrint

Henry Cavill was photographed on set today in Michigan, dressed as Clark Kent for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie.

A few photos of a stand-in for Henry were posted on Twitter yesterday, but today we have the real deal.

Additionally, a scene was filmed inside Hygrade Deli on Michigan Avenue on Thursday evening, with the Deli's name changed to Ralli's Diner.

    The Hygrade is an unpretentious restaurant known for its sandwiches, particularly its reuben. For the movie, it was transformed into an eatery called Ralli's Diner.

    Yes, Ralli's is the name of a diner that appears in 1987's "Superman" Vol. 2, #9, in the story "Metropolis 900 Mi," according to the DC Comics database hosted by Wikia.

    In the story, Lex Luthor meets a waitress named Jenny Hubbard at the faraway eatery and offers her $1 million if she’ll stay with him for one month. Think of it as "Indecent Proposal," Superman villain-style.
