It’s a bird.. It’s a plane… It’s Superman. (2010)

Surfing the web the other day and I came across this news which is rather old but, nevertheless, really interesting.
This past June the Dallas Theater Center put on a “revisal” of the acclaimed 1966 Broadway musical “It’s a bird.. It’s a plane… It’s Superman!”
The musical didn’t exactly followed the foots of the 66’s musical. The composers of the new version  wrote four new songs, reworked many more and agreed to drop others. Personally, one of the changes that I was relieved to read about was the fact that they sacrificed the show’s ballad “What I’ve Always Wanted”, according to the composers "it didn’t fit the new script’s characterization of Lois Lane".
Our beloved Lo was portrayed by Zakiya Young, who’s got quite a bit of publicity for being the first black Lois Lane. Every the review I’ve read about the musical, agreed on the fact that her portrayal was outstanding. 
The Edge Dallas  said ”Young makes for a plucky, spunky Lois Lane oozing confidence and enthusiasm.” 
SupermanHomepage  said "… Ms. Young’s Lois as a driven news-hen, who lets nothing stand in her way of getting the story. […]  if Superman were real, he would be attracted to a woman who was as super as he was. Zakiya Young is that Lois Lane. She can go undercover for a story and have no fear, yet the actress easily exudes concern for her hero Superman when he loses his power. It’s not Superman who conceives a way for him to regain his abilities, it’s Lois. Young channels the best of the many film Lois Lanes, and like Noel Neill, she even gets a chance to fly with Superman. ”
and The Denton Record-Chronicle stated “Zakiya Young exudes sass and sophistication as Lois Lane”
Knowing that an actress is able to make the character justice, truly makes me happy.
