Last Saturday I went once more to the O2 Arena in London, this time to experience the all new stage tour, Batman Live. As you can guess, the show's a Batman extravaganza, featuring an array of his iconic villains, sidekicks and gadgets in a 2 hour spectacle of stunts, acrobats and incredible special effects.
Hot on the heels of the Superhero-Broadway flop, Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark, Batman Live presents a completely new stage experience of the Caped Crusader, and with not a musical song or horrible accident in site. Focusing around how Batman and Robin came to be, the show's story was surprisingly better than I thought it would have been, with some witty dialogue thrown in too. The real appeal however, lies in the incredible set pieces laid out; everything from the "Flying Graysons" elegant circus trapeze routine and a fantastic wire-worked battle between Bats and Catwoman, to the Joker and Harley Quinn's mind boggling illusionary and a real Batmobile tearing up the stage. Not to mention the epic finale, featuring a battle between Batman, Robin and Catwoman against almost all of the Dark Knight's rogue gallery!
Naturally, I brought my camera along and took some snaps as well as a couple videos to share:
