Know what’s another good excuse for a holiday?


BATMAN LIVE – WORLD ARENA TOUR!

Before i write any further, i feel the need to emphasize what was previously emphasized in the article i read this from. THIS IS NOT A MUSICAL. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A MUSICAL. I find it funny there was specific emphasize on how this is not a musical. Almost seems like Batman himself was being all anal about appearing in a live stage performing and had to make sure that no singing and dancing shit like that would be involved.

“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, a writer from DC and executive creative director on DC Universe Online. “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.”

Seems like Geoff Johns’ getting lots of projects with DC lately. Good for him! He deserves it anyway for the kind of good work he has been constantly producing.

To call it a Batman play would be downplaying how awesome this live performance would be I think. With lack of better words, in my opinion, this would be a different way of experiencing the Caped Crusader and as close as we can ever watch him in action “live” on Broadway. Apart from good live music, I think it’s safe to say we can be prepared to watch some good action and acrobatic acts as well. And with Geoff Johns? Expect a good story plot.

The tour from start in the UK and moving its way to North America by 2012. It’s a safe bet to say i will be going for this show. I just think it’s such a shame that Nightwing won’t be in this. 😦

Below are the characters that will be involved, and for more information and details, check out this site: http://www.batmanlive.com/home.php.

Year 2012 is THE year for visiting the U.S. That’s the plan for now at least. Plans almost always never go as planned anyway.
