This event has passed.
Epic story, pocket proportions—seven actors share one tiny platform, just 3-by-7 feet of space, and upon it an original Superman tale unfolds. Set in a fictional 2050 Metropolis with a remarkable resemblance to Chicago, the show’s imaginative, resourceful cast members use only their bodies and voices to create every prop, scene, sound effect, and character in a battle between Superman and Lex Luthor for the future of the Midwest’s beloved high-speed rail network. Superman 2050 is bare-bones theater at its most physical and imaginative. Fresh from a successful run at Chicago’s The Second City, Theater Un•Speak•Able performs this high-energy, fast-paced show at New York’s Times Square International Theater Festival in winter 2012.
This show is recommended for ages 7 and up. Running time is 35 minutes.
