New rock musical SUPERYOU to debut at London’s Musical Con

SUPERYOU, a new rock musical will make its debut UK performance at Musical Con this October.

SUPERYOU is an empowering female-led musical, celebrating the journey of a comic book artist who learns to love herself and find her voice when her own superheroine creations come to life. With rock music at its core, the score also incorporates many different styles of music including pop, hip hop, swing, gospel, and anthemic power ballads.

The musical will be presented on the Main Stage of Musical Con at 12 noon on Saturday 22 October 2022. SUPERYOU has a book, music, and lyrics by Lourds Lane. It will feature direction and choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter with music direction and co-arrangements by Wendy Bobbitt Cavett.

The performance comes in anticipation of a workshop of the musical which will take place in London in November with presentations in December.

Vicki Manser (SIX), Renée Lamb (SIX), Tom Francis (& Juliet) and Natalie Green (Les Misérables) will perform alongside creator Lourds Lane in the presentation at Musical Con with casting for the workshops to be announced.

Originally slated to open off-Broadway in May 2020, SUPERYOU subsequently became the first theatrical show to safely perform live during the pandemic via concerts on pick-up trucks at a drive-in in upstate New York where it garnered a lot of attention both nationally and internationally.

The concerts were filmed and released as a documentary on Broadway on Demand and extended three times due to overwhelming demand. The musical’s TikTok account has so far over 21 million views worldwide and the concept album of demos recorded by Lourds Lane has developed a substantial cult following. #FANCOVERFRIDAY was created in response to fans across the world recording and posting their own versions of the songs.

The concept album can be heard at the link below.
