Hero (Asolo Repertory Theatre)

Book and concept by Aaron Thielen

 

Music and lyrics by Michael Mahler

 

Directed by David H. Bell

Instantly engaging and full of heart, Hero was a smashing success in its world premiere run at Chicago’s Marriott Theatre in 2012. Now, Asolo Rep presents this delightful musical as it continues its journey toward a very promising future. Aspiring comic book artist Hero Batowski lives anything but a superhero life—he’s 28 years old, works in his family’s Milwaukee comic book shop, and still lives at home with his dad. A long-ago tragedy left Hero unable to move on, but when a series of unexpected events occur, he must decide whether he’s ready to get his life on track. With a sensational pop/rock score, this bright new musical depicts the extraordinary moments in ordinary life that bring out the superhero in all of us.
