Batman is good. A night at the theatre is good. What happens when you combine them? The same result as combining Bacon and Cherries. Its called Batman Live!. It’s a gigantic stage show that will tour the UK next year. Video walls will be used as set pieces and there will be elements of stunt shows and illusions thrown in for fun. Riddler, Catwoman and more will be featured. I think I am just glad this isn’t a musical. They are making this “Family Friendly” so I have bad flash backs to the Sesame Street Live stage show I saw as a kid. The use of animation suggested both intrigues me and gives me hellish nightmares.
Of course I am not who this show is targeting. It will probably sell out and we will be talking about this show hitting stateside. I just hope that it’s more 1990’s Batman the Animated Series and less 1960’s Batman hippie hour. Well, I did enjoy the Indiana Jones stunt show at MGM Studios at Disney World so there maybe hope for Batman Live!
