First off, some news that I’m sure will make you guys happy, this is NOT a musical like Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark that is hitting Broadway. This is a live stage show that will feature classic character such as Alfred and even Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin, which, personally I think is kind of lame, and villains like the Joker, Riddler, Catwoman, and the Penguin. The production of the live stage show is being handled by the DC Creative Team.
“When a character has as wide an audience and as rich a history as Batman, it’s truly exciting to see him introduced into an all-new storytelling medium,” says Jim Lee, Co-Publisher, DC Comics.
The show will be opening July of 2011 in London and tickets for the event go on sale November 12. So what do you guys think about a live Batman show?
