First Spider-Man, and now Batman. Apparently turning superheroes into live stage shows is the new “in” thing. And from what I’ve been reading about the seemingly ill-fated Spider-man show, though, it’s not a cheap endeavor. In fact, they sound pretty damn expensive, and this “Batman Live” show is no exception. Check our your first look at Batman, Robin the Boy Wonder, and Joker, among other members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery that will be hitting the stage very soon.
For the first time in DC Comics history, see Batman the world’s most popular DC Super Hero as you’ve never seen him before, in an all-new, live-action arena adventure, set to take the world by storm. Premiering in the UK in Summer 2011, Batman Live – World Arena Tour is a multi-million pound stage production of unprecedented scale and a must-see for families and Batman fans everywhere.
Based on an original story being created exclusively for the show, Batman Live is a theatrical extravaganza of thrilling stunts, acrobatic acts and illusions. Never before has Gotham City, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum been brought to life on stage in a more visually exciting way. Join Batman and Robin as they battle their nemesis The Joker and other super-villains such as The Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, set on destroying Gotham City.
Totally authentic, bold and awe-inspiring, Batman Live will be a completely new way to experience the world of Batman. This is one adventure you do not want to miss!
Curiously, the UK gets the show first this July, before the Bat finally returns home in 2012 for North American dates. Find out more info and future showtime dates at the official site.
