Batman Live – A brand new stage show premiering in the UK in 2011

A Batman Live show? well I had no idea this was coming and for a change it’s premiering in the UK first with tickets to go on sale this Friday.

I have no idea what to expect from this show or even what style of Batman we’re going to see on the stage but hopefully whatever the end result it will be something that us Bat fans will be happy with.

Opening in Manchester on 20th July 2011 and visiting Newcastle, Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Nottingham, Dublin and Belfast, tickets for BATMAN LIVE go on sale on Friday 12th November 2010.

BATMAN LIVE is a visually stunning production, complete with a brand new original storyline.  The live show will feature Batman, his trusty counterpart Robin, tireless butler Alfred and a host of other favourite Batman characters, including Villains such as The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman and The Penguin.  The story will take place in several settings from the famed DC Comics stories, including Gotham City, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum.

“With the touring BATMAN LIVE show, we’re bringing Batman’s adventures to live audiences for the very first time,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment.  “The idea that we’re doing it with a production team this talented and with this much passion is thrilling.”

BATMAN LIVE, produced by Nick Grace of Water Lane Productions, will feature impressive stunts, pyrotechnics, illusions and video screen sequences.  Totally authentic, bold and awe-inspiring, BATMAN LIVE will offer a completely new way to experience the world of Batman and will be a must-see for fans and families everywhere.

BATMAN LIVE is based on an original story being created exclusively for the show.  Creative Director is Anthony van Laast and Co-Director, James Powell.  Set design by Es Devlin, music composed by James Brett, sound design by Simon Baker, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, video direction by Sam Pattinson, costume design by Jack Galloway.  Circus sequences created, produced and managed in association with Circus Space with Bryan Donaldson and Juliette Hardy-Donaldson as circus consultants.
