New musical SuperYou to run at Curve Leicester

SuperYou logo

New musical SuperYou is to have a fully staged production at Leicester’s Curve Theatre this autumn.

The show will come to Curve as a full production from 22 October to 9 November.

With book, music and lyrics by Lourds Lane, the show was originally set to open Off Broadway in spring 2020, but then became the first theatrical show to share live performances during the pandemic with concerts on pick-up trucks in upstate New York.

The musical has since become a viral sensation, with clips racking up millions of views worldwide on TikTok, two sold-out Carnegie Hall concerts in 2022 and a concert at the Lyric Theatre in the West End in November 2023.

Life happens. Somehow, we lose touch with our joy, our passion, our power. We forget who the hero is in our own story. Enter SuperYou — the journey of a woman who reconnects with her dreams when her superheroine creations come to life.

Featuring mind-blowing female performers, new, iconic superheroines and an instantly singable, anthemic modern rock score, SuperYou is the heartwarming story of a woman remembering the power of her own voice.

SuperYou has book/music/lyrics and co-arrangements by Lourds Lane, direction and choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, music supervision by Wendy Bobbitt Cavett, scenic design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Cynthia Nordstorm with video design by Caite Hevner, lighting design by Ryan O’Gara and sound design by Tony Gayle. Casting by Pearson Casting and is produced by Melissa M. Jones / All Awesome LLC with general management by Anthology Theatre Productions.

A concept album is available to stream on Spotify here.
