2019 New York Musical Festival
2019 - Hero: the musical
The willingness to try can be the greatest power.
Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at 7:00PM
Stavros Niarchos Foundation Studio at Playwrights Horizons
416 W 42nd Street
Turning the Superhero trope on its ear, two gay roommates in “Gotham” adjacent, Jersey City, become hero & sidekick. The out of shape comic book store owner, and naive El Salvadorian immigrant, learn that some super powers aren’t that super, villains aren’t always villainous & your chosen family of hipsters, drag queens & real estate agents, are the ones who might actually save you. The expenses of NYC, proper spandex use, coming out to Mamma & rescuing your local beer joint, all come together in a funny/touching story with super-catchy songs.
