**We understand not everyone is comfortable being in a crowd without masks yet, so City Lit still requires masks for our Sunday matinee performances.  Masks are encouraged but no longer required for Friday, Saturday and our 2 Monday performances.  City Lit staff will continue to mask for all performances.  If you have already made a reservation and because of this information you'd like to switch performances, please let us know and we'd be happy to reschedule you.


In 1939, two young friends huddled in a Bronx apartment and created a legend. A hero who represents an enduring chapter in the tale of the American comic book. One, Bob Kane, would profit from that legend for years to come, and the other would be all but forgotten. This is the legacy of the mark of Kane.


The Mark of Kane begins a three-year world premiere of “The Four-Color Trilogy,” highlighting major turning points in American comic book history.
