ED2012 Theatre Review: Superheroes (Tom Corradini)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

What do most superheroes have in common? Superpowers, a notion of righteousness, justice and a lot of muscles? Well, you’re right, but that’s not all. Most of them also had a difficult or tragic childhood…. just think about it. The Hulk had a violent, alcoholic father. Thor – no love whatsoever from his godly parents. Spiderman? Orphaned. And so on. So is that why they grew into what they are, has this shaped the way they enter relationships? Tom Corradini presents a funny and intelligent overview of what really moves our heroes, while managing to get half the audience on stage to assist him. It helps to know all the characters but is not absolutely necessary.

theSpace on North Bridge, 10-25 Aug (not 11, 12, 19), 4.35pm.
