These set design photos for Batman Live might make you forget about that Spider-Man show
If Jim Lee and Geoff Johns approve of Batman Live, well then I may also be inclined to approve of it as well.
Unlike other doomed superhero stage productions, Batman Live is not a musical. Of course there will be acrobatic acts and stunts but maybe people won't bust their heads open as quickly in this show. Batman Live also promises that the price per ticket would be cheaper. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is selling tickets for anywhere in between $67.50 - $140.00. The show is produced by Nick Grace who was behind other shows like Mamma Mia! and Walking with Dinosaurs.
Geoff Johns is the one behind the story for the huge spectacle. The Batman Live site only offers this as a synopsis:
"Based on an original story being created exclusively for the show, Batman Live is a theatrical extravaganza of thrilling stunts, acrobatic acts and illusions. Never before has Gotham City, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum been brought to life on stage in a more visually exciting way. Join Batman and 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."
Batman Live will hit the UK this summer. After touring for awhile in Europe, the show will premiere Summer 2012 here in the states. Check out the set designs as well as the cast of characters included in the show.
