The Fortress of Solitude at The Public Theater (Photos)
An all-star cast is leading the world premiere of the brand new musical The Fortress Of Solitude which is one of the first new shows of The Public Theater’s season this Fall! The musical, which features a book by Itamar Moses and music and lyrics by Michael Friedman, is based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by Jonathan Lethem. The story talks about a group of teenagers in Brooklyn in the 1970’s. Through soul music, block parties, rap music, blackouts, their friendship grows and centers around superheroes as the group finds themselves thinking if they believe enough, they can fly too just like their idols. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at The Fortress of Solitude at The Public Theater!
The Fortress of Solitude began previews on September 30th before officially opening on October 22nd! The musical plays through November 2nd. The musical was conceived and directed by Daniel Aukin.
