Archives For Gotham City

You don’t have to be a kid to dream big or play big – this is just the sort of event where you can do both! Batman Live is a unique action-packed live arena show sure to arouse your super hero senses and bring the story to life for fans of all ages. What is cool about the show is that you really enter the world of Gotham in a way you can’t experience on-screen or anywhere else. You are an active participant in the story and a real part of Batman’s world.

Batman Live is a visually stunning, state-of-the-art production, which brings Batman, a host of iconic characters, and the settings from the famed world of DC Comics, live and on stage for the very first time in North America. Cheer on your favorite super hero and watch the story unfold before your eyes.

As you enter the arena, you are greeted by a 3D Gotham City landscape complete with buildings, sound scape, and video animation, setting the scene for the story to come. The magnitude of the production becomes apparent from the first moment the full symphonic score is heard and the 105-foot bat-shaped LED video wall comes to life to enhance the action on a custom-built massive stage featuring impressive stunts, pyrotechnics, illusions, and video screen sequences.

Another exciting element is the all-new Batmobile, designed especially for the show.

The action of the show becomes a non-stop thrill ride across Gotham City that transforms Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson into the legendary crime-fighters, Batman and Robin. The adventure transports you from the Big Top of Haly’s Circus to the depths of Arkham Asylum, and from the glittering peaks of the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge to the subterranean wonders that await inside the Batcave. Acrobats suspended in the air, The Joker’s henchmen in choreographed fight sequences, and stunning scenic elements are all part of the Batman Live experience.

With a 42-person cast, Batman Live has a brand new, original storyline, and features Batman, his trusty counterpart Robin, tireless butler Alfred, and a host of other favorite Batman characters. Additional favorites include villains such as The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and The Penguin.

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.
