What is Batman Live About?

Chances are, you saw The Dark Knight Rises and were blown away by the spectacle that was Batman on screen. However, Batman has been a comic book icon long before he was ever a movie star or a TV series hero. And we’re guessing that you still haven’t seen Batman as imagined by Broadway! With the success of the Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark musical, not to mention those Jim Henson Muppets and Disney figure skaters that make it look easy, perhaps it was only a matter of time before the caped crusader would get his own “live” production.

What can you expect from Batman Live? This touring stage show is not just a dramatic journey into the mind of Batman. It is also a production that gives kids and adults what they’re expecting from seeing such a popular myth come to life. Expect circus acts, stage magic show elements and non-stop action!

The production debuted in Manchester of the UK last year, but it was so popular that it found touring interest in the United States, not to mention throughout England and Ireland. In the summer of 2012, it finally came to the states and made a big splash.

The story follows the origins of Batman as well as Robin, who had a stint in the circus. From there, the plot unravels and we also get a glimpse into Batman’s psyche and origin. Alfred, Commissioner Gordon and all your favorites are in the stage play and you get to watch as pivotal comic book continuity scenes take place, such as the death of Robin’s family, as well as a modern day crime plot by Arkham’s notorious inmates.

Expect to see all of your favorite villains as well as heroes, such as the Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Riddler, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn and even Catwoman. It may not be as dark as the Christopher Nolan directed film, but the stage play is true to the comic right down to the scowl of the Dark Knight himself. The show will be touring in major American cities throughout the rest of 2012. Show your love of Gotham and see Batman in person!
