A Hero’s Journey
The story of Rogers: The Musical follows the life of Steve Rogers as he becomes Captain America and travels through time.

The play covers Rogers’ humble beginnings, his journey as the leader of the Avengers, and his battles for the Infinity Stones.
In a Marvel press release, Christopher Lennertz spoke about the music’s creation: “It was important to us to continue the best of both Avengers and Broadway traditions, infusing humor, heart, and heroic action into the music. The score has memorable melodies and a huge scope of instrumentation that matches the iconic presence of our hero. Audiences will hear big band jazz, modern funk, classic orchestra, and more.”
