SuperYou Musical, centres around the transformative journey of a comic book artist who discovers self-love and her own voice as her super heroine creations spring to life.
The musical had originally been planned for an off-Broadway debut, and was the first theatrical production to perform during the pandemic, performing concerts on socially distanced pick-up trucks at a drive-in, in upstate New York. These pandemic concerts garnered national and international attention, and a film was later released as a popular documentary on Broadway on Demand.
Due to its online popularity and viral videos, SuperYou quickly sold-out Carnegie Hall in July 2022. The musical then continued its success with a critical and audience- acclaimed developmental production at Skylight Music Theatre in Milwaukee in June 2023.
The creative team behind this performance of the musical includes: music supervision by Wendy Bobbitt Cavett, projection design by Caite Hevner, lighting design by Charlie Morgan Jones, sound design by Justin Teasdale, arrangements and orchestrations by Lourds Lane and Wendy Bobbitt Cavett, and is produced by Melissa M. Jones / All Awesome with general management by Anthology Theatre Productions. Casting by Pearson Casting.
