Batman Live Will Focus On The Origins Of Robin!

An interview with Nick Grace and Geoff Johns reveals that the show will focus on Dick Grayson becoming Robin as well as loads of other new details about the characters and setting...



Firstly, here are a list of interesting points that were revealed in the article:

• The show will wow audiences with aeriel acrobatics, martial arts, stunning special effects and, of course, Batman, the Batmobile and a whole host of enemies.

• The successful bid to create a live Batman show came from impresario Nick Grace, the man behind the hit show Walking With Dinosaurs.

• The stage show, with a 90-strong cast and crew, will describe how the Caped Crusader adopts orphaned circus boy Dick Grayson, who become sidekick Robin, and will showcase crooks including The Joker, The Riddler and Catwoman.

• To recreate the sweeping skyline of Gotham city, a long runway stage will take the action right into the audience and a giant 130ft video screen will provide stunning backdrops and animations to drive the story along.

Here's what the man behind the show Nick Grace had to say about the show:

"We decided against theatres because you can’t do things on a huge scale. In the arenas you can have pyrotechnics and large video screens and lots of action. An event like this deserves to be in a big space. It is not a musical, but a dramatic show with a storyline which tells the origins of Batman’s sidekick Robin. There is dialogue but the scenes are short, snappy and full of action. We basically wanted to bring the excitement of a comicbook to stage."


Here's what comic book writer Geoff Johns had to say about the show:

"The fact that it’s based on Robin’s story really lends itself to the stage. He is a circus performer who becomes a superhero. I can’t think of a better way of telling the story than with live performers."
