About the Play:

Sex Lives Of Superheroes is a one-act comedy by Stephen Gregg. A young man is struggling with the break up from the "love of his life." When his life becomes too stressful, he dives into his dream world where he lectures audiences at Carnegie Hall on the sex lives of superheroes.

Sex Lives Of Superheroes follows an unlikely love triangle in which one girl seeks to replace another in a guy's pathetic real life and rich fantasy life. Michael is so obsessed with his ex-girlfriend, Lisa, that he would do anything for her. Even allow her weekly visits to his apartment in which she strips, piece by piece, all of his possessions. Elenor, Michael's date for the evening, is appalled to find that he copes with these frustrations by giving fantasy lectures on the sexual habits of comic book heroes. The two seem a complete mismatch until Michael discovers that Elenor has her own obsession…

Sex Lives Of Superheroes was originally produced Off-Broadway in 1989 as part of the Manhattan Punch Line's Fifth Annual Festival of One-Act Comedies and has been seen at many other regional theatres.

Cast: 2 women, 1 man (alternate casting, 3 actors either gender)
