Last year I started working with bookwriter/lyricist Kevin Del Aguila on a new musical called The Astonishing Return of… The Protagonists! about middle-aged superheroes trying to recapture past glories. This past week we’ve been in the studio recording demos of the first three songs, and the cast we’ve assembled is amazing and sounds fantastic.
- Marc Kudisch (9 to 5, Assassins, The Wild Party) as Captain Marvelous
- Andy Karl (9 to 5, Legally Blonde, Altar Boyz) as Voltman
- Christopher Sieber (Shrek The Musical, Spamalot) as The Sensational Clump
- Tyler Maynard (The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Altar Boyz) as Fishboy
- Kate Wetherhead (Legally Blonde) as Penelope
- Tituss Burgess (Guys and Dolls, The Little Mermaid), Lisa Howard (9 to 5, Spelling Bee), Cassondra Kellam, and Michael Marcotte (Stephen Schwartz’s Making Good, Seance) as The Citizens
- Todd Alan Johnson (a man of 1000 voices) as The Narrator, Volcanix, and all the other voices.
We’re still waiting to find our Eagle Woman!
