NEW "BATMAN" ARENA SHOW

The Telegraph provides the first glimpse of what the sets will look like for Batman Live, the big-budget arena show that kicks off this summer in the United Kingdom.
Officially announced in November, the multimillion-dollar production, which naturally draws comparisons to the troubled Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, will pit Batman and Robin against such villains as the Joker, Catwoman, the Riddler, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn. But at the story’s core is Dick Grayson’s transformation from traumatized orphan to Boy Wonder, and how Batman relates to his new sidekick.

As you can see above and after the break, the newspaper has photos of models of a Joker hot-air balloon, the 100-feet by 60-feet performance area backed by a giant video screen, and the Flying Graysons circus set. (According to the article, “there will be an onstage disaster with a hot-air balloon and a Joker face whose eyes, teeth and hair are made up of dozens of dancers.”) The show also will recreate such Gotham City locations as Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum.

Batman Live kicks off on July 20 in Manchester, then tours the U.K. through Oct. 8 before heading to Europe and then North America. FROM --http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2011/01/heres-what-the-multimillion-dollar-batman-live-arena-show-will-look-like/
