Profile

Named for Superman's secret Artic headquarters, Jonathan Lethem's semi-autiographical novel-turned-musical concerns two boyhood friends who grow up together in Brooklyn's newly-christened Boerum Hill in the 1970s. As children, Dylan and Mingus have quite a bit in common, stuff like comic books and the fact that their mothers are gone and their fathers are often distracted and absent. But there was one difference that everyone around them would make sure they knew: Dylan is white, Mingus is black. The narrative follows the boys as their lives diverge on different paths. The Fortress of Solitude, with a book by Itamar Moses (The Four of Us, Completeness) and music and lyrics by Michael Friedman (Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson), marks the Dallas Theater Center's continued collaboration with the The Public Theater in New York. The musical will have an off-Broadway run after its premiere. You saw it here first, folks.
