Michael Rouse will star in the world premiere of the one-man musical Superhero at London’s Southwark Playhouse from 28 June to 22 July 2017 (press night is 30 June).
Directed by Adam Lenson and written by Richy Hughes, Joseph Finlay and Michael Conley (based on an original idea by Hughes), Superhero is the first musical to play in Southwark Playhouse’s Little space.
‘Good afternoon, your honour. I’m Colin Bradley. I’m here today to ask you, your honour, not to let Christine Davis, my ex-wife, move out of the country with Emily Bradley, my daughter.’
Colin and Christine separated five years ago. Now Christine is taking their daughter to Los Angeles with her new job, and there’s nothing Colin can do about it. Or is there?
Including ‘Don’t Look Down’, the Stiles and Drewe Prize-winning song, Superhero is a new one man musical by Hughes (Mr Popper’s Penguins), Conley (The Sorrows of Satan) and Joseph Finlay (This is Also England).

His theatre credits include Romeo and Juliet, The Winter’s Tale, Harlequinade (Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the Garrick), Three Men in a Boat (UK tour), Carousel (Barbican), Matilda (RSC), Oklahoma!
