About this show

World-renowned as the ultimate jazz hot spot, Birdland clears the stage for the world premiere concert of a new musical about man boobs and treadmills and hoagies and Broadway. Told in parody form, Holding Out for a Hero relates the story of four overweight men in their quest to be the next big thing to hit Broadway and not the next big thing to walk down the streets of Broadway. With a little help from an Overeaters Anonymous program and a few treadmills, these four men discover who they are and what success truly is. Jump on the bandwagon before there even is a wagon and be the first to see the show that USA Tomorrow calls "The hit of the century! Or at least it will be when people have actually heard of it and are able to see it and we are a real newspaper."
