Irish audiences will be amongst the first in the world to witness the new Batman Live Experience when it visits the O2 venue next summer. The production features Batman, Robin and his most infamous villains including 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."
"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. "BATMAN LIVE will bring a completely new experience to fans of the character - it's great to be able to give them something they haven't seen before."
The show promises impressive stunts, pyrotechnics, illusions and video screen sequences. Producers are keen to stress that it's not a musical but a high quality live show with an original Batman story.
Stay tuned to Movies.ie for a competition and a review of the show. Tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster this weekend.
