Dueling Critics: Summer Musicals

A few weeks ago our Dueling Critics took us deep into the heartland for some out of the way summer theater picks.

This week they've stayed close to home. But we're asking them to leap three musicals, and a few decades, in a single bound.

Eight Forty-Eight's Dueling CriticsJonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman, have three new Chicago-area musicals to tell us about—one that takes us back to the 1970s, another that's set in the '80s, and one that revives a '60s-era Broadway vision of Superman.
