He's Faster Than a Speeding Bullet. And, For One Night, Superman Is Also Quite Affordable.
There is but one catch, as always, per an e-mail from the theater's public relations director, Jacob Cigainero: "Patrons may purchase any seat for any price of their choosing. Pay What You Can tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. the day of the performance, and must be purchased in-person at the Wyly Theatre box office." After that, tickets are going for anywhere between $15 and $78.
On some nights, the audience should be as interesting as the show: Lee Adams, one half of the Bye Bye Birdie songwriting duo, has been in town to get a first glimpse at the newly staged show; he and Strouse will attend opening night. Also likely to attend performances: some original cast members, famous friends and family members of the current roster and even DC Comics execs curious to see if Superman can compete with Spider-Man, due to make his musical-theater bow on Broadway sometime in the fall (maybe).
