“Superhero” is a new musical featuring a book by Tony winner John Logan and a score by Tony and Pulitzer winner Tom Kitt. Directed by Tony nominee Jason Moore, the show runs at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre through March 31.

In “Superhero,” Charlotte and her high-school aged son, Simon, are at an impasse after two years of grief and mourning after Charlotte’s husband, Simon’s father, was killed unexpectedly. Charlotte wants to talk about what happened, Simon prefers to escape into the world of comic books.

Two-time Tony Award nominee, Kate Baldwin, plays Charlotte. Baldwin most recently played Irene Malloy in “Hello, Dolly” starring, Bette Midler, Donna Murphy, and Bernadette Peters in the title role during the show’s 500+ performance run. Kate’s previous Broadway credits include “Big Fish,” “Finian’s Rainbow,” “Wonderful Town,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and “The Full Monty.” She’s also appeared with some regularity with Berkshire Theatre Group in their productions of “A Little Night Music,” “Bells are Ringing,” and “Constellations.”

Sarah has been a public radio producer for over fifteen years. She grew up in Saranac Lake, New York where she worked part-time at Pendragon Theatre all through high school and college. She graduated from UAlbany in 2006 with a BA in English and started at WAMC a few weeks later as a part-time board-op in the control room. Through a series of offered and seized opportunities she is now the Senior Contributing Producer of The Roundtable and Producer of The Book Show. During the main thrust of the Covid-19 pandemic shut-down, Sarah hosted a live Instagram interview program "A Face for Radio Video Series." On it, Sarah spoke with actors, musicians, comedians, and artists about the creative activities they were accomplishing and/or missing.
