It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Superman
Drury Lane Oakbrook Terrace, Chicagoland�s Award-winning theater, presents IT�S A BIRD, IT�S A PLANE, IT�S SUPERMAN, a sly and sassy send-up of the Man of Steel. With a tongue-in-cheek script by Robert Benton and David Newman and a fabulous, much-lauded score by BYE BYE BIRDIE�s Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, the musical pokes fun at the American superhero whose unwavering morality, fidelity, and loyalty have made him a celebrated hero and favorite through the decades. IT�S A BIRD, IT�S A PLANE, IT�S SUPERMAN will be directed by William Osetek, with musical direction by Margaret James and choreography by Tammy Mader, and will preview May 31, open June 7, and close July 29 at at Drury Lane Oakbrook, 100 Drury Lane, Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181

IT�S A BIRD, IT�S A PLANE, IT�S SUPERMAN is an action-packed glimpse into the life of DC Comics� most forthright, eager and famous hero. As the show opens, Superman � in his guise as Clark Kent � is working for the Daily Planet and in love with Lois Lane, although she is beginning to chafe at the problems inherent in dating a superhero. An arch-villain is soon plotting Superman�s downfall, in a convoluted plot which involves a troupe of acrobats (who can no longer get paid to perform since everyone started watching Superman fly for free), a supercomputer called the Brainiac 7, and a theatrical columnist who also hates the hero (both for dating Lois Lane and for constantly stealing his headlines). Will Superman fall prey to Professor Sedgewick�s psychobabble and lose his confidence in his own super abilities? Will he lose Lois to a less-than-charming rival who at least never cuts dates short to go rescue someone?

The performance schedule is as follows: Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., Fridays at 8:30 p.m., Saturdays at 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. and 6 p.m. Show prices range from $25 to $50 (depending on the day of the week); Lunch or Dinner and Theatre Packages are available. Inquire at box office or website for details and prices. For reservations, phone (630) 530-0111 or call TicketMaster at 312-599-1212.

Great Men of Genius Marathon
This June, masterful monologist Mike Daisey returns to Berkeley Rep with Great Men of Genius, a series of shows that apply his trademark wit and eccentric insight to fascinating historical figures performed June 6 through July 1. On consecutive nights, Mike explores the legendary lives of P.T. Barnum, Bertolt Brecht, L. Ron Hubbard, and Nikola Tesla � and on Sundays he performs all four monologues in a manic marathon worthy of a mad scientist.
“In Great Men of Genius, directed by Jean-Michele Gregory, Mike Daisey crashes his audacious style of storytelling into the lives of four masterminds and explores the nature of genius, wrestling with the pride, insanity, and chauvinism that bind these men together � and revealing what the heights and depths of their gifts can teach us about ourselves,” states press notes, “Along the way, of course, he discovers unexpected aspects of himself. Each monologue is unique and can be viewed independently, but the four together form an epic oral account of triumph and folly told with Daisey’s dark and hilarious intensity.”
Great Men of Genius will be performed on the following schedule: o Brecht on Wednesdays: June 6, 13, 20 & 27 at 8PM o Barnum on Thursdays: June 7, 14, 21 & 28 at 8PM o Tesla on Fridays: June 8, 15, 22 & 29 at 8PM o Hubbard on Saturdays: June 9, 16, 23 & 30 at 8PM
