Since graduating from Ithaca College, Matt Cavenaugh ’01 has starred on Broadway in such shows as Urban CowboyGrey GardensA Catered Affair, and West Side Story (as Tony). But his most recent role has taken him much higher—in the air, that is.

It’s a Bird . . . It’s a Plane . . . It’s Superman was staged by the Dallas Theater Company this summer, with Cavenaugh (as Superman/Clark Kent) reuniting with director Kevin Moriarty. While an IC student, Cavenaugh acted in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Hangar Theatre in Ithaca when Moriarty was its artistic director.

Critics called It’s a Bird . . . “grand entertainment,” and Moriarty hopes to bring the production to Broadway.
