Company One and Phoenix Theatre Artists
Bring Back Last Season’s Smash Hit
“The Superheroine Monologues”

Phoenix Theatre Artists and Company One have announced the return of last season’s smash hit, "The Superheroine Monologues," for a limited engagement at the Boston Center for the Arts.

Based on an idea by Phoenix Theatre Artists’ Artistic Director Greg Maraio, the play is written by two of Boston’s most talented playwrights, Rick Park and John Kuntz. Performances are set for September 10 - 26.

"Superheroines" is an action-packed parody that travels through the decades. Beginning in the 1940s, the play is a glimpse into the life of each heroine set against the backdrop of women’s evolving role in society. From Catwoman in the psychedelic ‘60s, to Supergirl in the ‘80s and Dark Phoenix in the present day, the heroines share what it’s really like to be a woman with super powers.

Touching, funny and always campy, the show's dynamic divas promise to answer questions no one ever dreamed to ask. Following the show's World Premiere in April at Boston Playwrights Theatre, the cast and crew received hundreds of requests to produce the show again. For September's production, audiences can expect a more interactive experience, including more music and a number of new supporting characters. A few heroines have new secrets to tell, and there will also be more interaction between the heroines as they travel through time.

“Although we were always confident that 'Superheroines' would do well, we underestimated the number of people who would feel a connection to the show,” said Maraio. “When we considered bringing the show back, it never crossed our mind to just keep everything the same. We listened very carefully to what our audiences loved most about the show, and gave them more of it.”
