Faithfully adapted from the DC Comics’ characters and stories, Batman Live focuses on Robin’s quest for justice, which leads him to follow in the footsteps of his hero, the mysterious vigilante known as the Batman – much to the dismay of his protective guardian, millionaire Bruce Wayne – who secretly happens to be Batman. Watch the drama unfold in the all new, live-action, arena adventure in a city near you!
This dynamic triangle resolves itself in a non-stop thrill-ride across Gotham City that transforms Bruce Wayneand Dick Grayson into the legendary crime-fighters Batman and Robin and transports the audience from the Big Top of Haly’s Circus to the lower depths of Arkham Asylum, from the glittering peaks of the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge to the subterranean wonders that await inside the Batcave.
Two and a half years in the making, Batman Live is a spectacular stage production of unprecedented scale. With an original script written by Allan Heinberg, and with a production team headed by its creative director Anthony Van Laast, Batman Live is a theatrical extravaganza of thrilling stunts, acrobatic acts, and illusions and is a non‐stop thrill ride across Gotham City. Totally authentic, bold, and awe‐inspiring, Batman Live is a completely new way to experience the world of Batman and a must‐see for fans and families everywhere.
Batman Live features a cast of 42 actors and circus trained acrobats, a 3D Gotham City landscape, an original symphonic score, a custom‐built and state-of‐the-art stage, a 105‐foot bat‐shaped LED video wall, big flight sequences, pyrotechnics, and the impressive Batmobile, designed especially for the show by legendary racing car designer Professor Gordon Murray.
Batman Live is a poignant coming‐of‐age story. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson must learn to overcome their own fears and forge their own family – with the help of Police Commissioner James Gordon and Bruce’s trusted butler, Alfred Pennyworth – if they’re going to survive the combined forces of Batman’s larger‐than‐life rogues’ gallery, some of the most famous and beloved villains of the 20th century.
Never before has Wayne Manor, the Batcave, The Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge, the Big Top of Haly’s Circus, and Arkham Asylum been brought to life on stage in a more visually exciting way. Join Batman and his accomplice 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.
