Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

March 29th – On this day in 1966, the Superman musical, It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman, opens on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre. Bob Holiday plays the role of Clark Kent/Superman, while Patricia Marand takes on the part of Lois Lane.

More tomorrow…
