Clever, Entertaining, Enchanting, Great staging

See it if you want just a fun time with a very good score and choreography

Don't see it if Only about half the voices are strong enough to carry their solos, but are fine for the chorus...but its Fringe.

61
Ambitious, Cliched, Entertaining, Unoriginal, Decent

See it if you're looking for something safe and don't mind a little repetition.

Don't see it if you want something edgy and new

Theatre is Easy
August 21st, 2016

"It’s certainly a challenge to merge the superhero genre with that of musical theatre, but 'Super!' is well on its way to creating something special. While Krueger’s story may need to work out some of its kinks, his characters are well-drawn and interesting, and his score is filled with some impressive musical moments. If given the necessary revisions, this is one superhero show that will have the chance to fly above all the rest."

CurtainUp
August 15th, 2016

“A derivative, nonsensical mess, ripped off from multiple superhero origin stories which all did their jobs better than this one does...The music is forgettable and, unfortunately, beyond the vocal abilities of most of the performers who, despite their obvious enthusiasm, struggle to stay in tune, and they get little help from a dreadful pit orchestra. But the biggest problem, and the one which probably underlies all the others, is that the show has no idea what it wants to be.”

"There were a number of very talented actors in this musical with excellent voices. Others not so much!There were moments of sheer brilliance. At other times, the word 'torture' came to mind. Some lyrics need to be re-written and the story line must be updated to be made more interesting. I wanted to be taken on a journey to a place I haven't been before. I wanted to be surprised and moved emotionally.Instead, I just got more of the same I've experienced many times before in this genre."
