SO I LIKE SUPERMAN: A One-Nerd Show
In 1938, at the height of the great depression, the world was introduced to the greatest hero of all time.
In 1982, at the height of Mary Hartney's post-partum depression, that character was introduced to the biggest, gayest nerd of all time.
In So I Like Superman, writer/performer/comic book nerd Michael Hartney tells the secret origin of his lifelong obsession with the Man of Steel, oddly mirroring the plot of Superman: The Movie.
You will believe a nerd can believe a man can fly.

Love Can Suck A Dick...And So Can I!
Leslie got dumped. A lot. So like no woman has ever done ever in the history of theatre, she wrote a one-woman show, with help from her broken heart, about how much love sucks a big 'ol dong. That show became a Tony, Obie, Drama Desk, and Trans-Pacific Broadway Railroad award-winning sensation. Tonight is its historic 3,557th Broadway performance!
You will see how bad love can suck.

"Strong characters and a lot of laughs."
-Time Out New York
"Using a mix of scripted material and improvisation audience participation, the show is definitely comedy and theater at its finest and as it should be â€“ real, in the moment."
"A delightful tale of heartbreak by Leslie Meiselâ€”who manages the impressive feat of being adorable, sexy, and hilarious all at the same time, and is a sharp comedic talent very much worth keeping an eye onâ€”quite ably abetted by co-writer Megan Neuringer in one of the smartest theatrical shows to grace UCBT this year."
"Leslie Meisel and Megan Neuringer will make you double over with laughter as they rewrite whatever notions you have of a show that revolves around heartbroken woman."
