Theater Review: World Premiere of The Fortress of Solitude, a Co-Production of Dallas Theater Center and The Public Theater in New York


Spanning generations, musical genres, and cultural boundaries, this intriguing production serves up soulful harmonies and music that's finger snappin' good.

Following the success of the epic saga Giant which took a lil' bit of Texas to New York, Dallas Theater Center has once again collaborated with The Public Theater to now bring a part of New York City to Dallas. The world premiere of the brand new musical The Fortress of Solitude (a reference to Superman's secret headquarters) introduces a coming-of-age story about two motherless boys who discover superpowers and bond over comic books, LPs, and graffiti. It's a fresh yet sentimental musical walk down memory lane featuring reimagined songs of the '70's, '80's, and '90's; it's a journey through love and loss, hope and despair, unity and division … and, in one way or another, it's a story specifically relevant to each of us. 

Read the full review of this world premiere musical starring Adam Chanler-Berat, Kyle Beltran, AndrĂ© De Shields, Kevin Mambo, Etai BenShlomo, Nick Christopher, Carla Duren, and more at:
