A world premiere based on the contemporary superhero story by Austin Grossman
"an amusingly intense score by Christopher Kriz…..striking and original"
"Christopher Kriz (music and lyrics) has composed a powerful score with inspirational lyrics befitting a super hero existentialist crisis. Kriz mixes ballad moments in with we-are-going-to-kick-some-ass anthems. The combination is dynamic! There is a lot to love about this show and Kriz’ music is #1."
-The Fourth Walsh
