WHAT WE NEED...

                  WHAT WE NEED...

IS A

NEW KIND OF HERO

After  a World Premiere AND a West Coast Premiere, UP AND AWAY is ready to make audiences beam with joy and laugh themselves silly all over again!

Before Superman could fly...Before Spiderman could swing...Someone had to work out the kinks.

UP AND AWAY is a musical comedy tour-de-force about the world's very FIRST superhero trying to figure out if he should use his gifts for fame and fortune, or for good...and how to stop flying into walls.

"With five actors, two pianos,

a drum and a unit set, they have crafted

a world that is at once comic-strip

broad and full of authentic heart,

smart enough for adults but clean

enough for kids to enjoy together."

"Up and Away is a fast-moving,

BAM!

POW!

SPLAT!

of a good time."
