The Astonishing Return of… The Protagonists!

September 2009

Original music by Michael Shaieb, book and lyrics by Kevin Del Aguila for a two-act stage musical about middle-aged superheroes facing old foes and new midlife crises.

“Once upon a time, The Protagonists was a mighty group of superheroes bound against the forces of evil. Twenty years later, the powers of alcoholism, infidelity and super-egos have torn the group apart and left them all pining for their glory days. When an old nemesis re-emerges with a sinister new plan, can the middle-aged superheroes pull their dysfunctional lives together to save the world one last time? Stay-Tuned.”

The National Alliance for Musical Theatre featured a 45-minute presentation of The Protagonists starring Sutton Foster at the 25th Annual Festival of New Musicals with musical direction by Lynne Shankel & directed by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli.

MT Fest UK will present a semi-staged excerpt of The Protagonists at The Other Palace in London in February 2019.
