About Superhero

Before we can save the world, we have to save each other. From the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer of Next to Normal and the Tony Award-winning writer of Red comes 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.

Tell Me More

A superhero named Jim (Bryce Pinkham) may be just who Charlotte (Kate Baldwin) and her teenage son, Simon (Kyle McArthur), need after a difficult year coping with the death of Charlotte’s husband and Simon’s father. Although their family has been torn apart by the void he’s left, with Jim’s help, they are on the brink of moving forward.

Featuring music by Tom Kitt, one half of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning songwriting team behind “Next to Normal” and the music supervisor of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” and a book by Tony Award-winning “Red” writer John Logan, the world premiere of “Superhero” shines a spotlight on a fractured family. Like “Next to Normal,” Kitt reveals, “It’s a project I feel deeply personal about and cathartic. I really feel like my heart’s on the page.”

  • Kelli O’Hara was among the cast of the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center staging, helping workshop the piece.
  • Songwriter Tom Kitt describes this superhero story as focusing more on the human aspects of the hero and less about the action-packed battles. “It’s more about the Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne idea,” he says.
