'Batman Live'


"Batman Live: The Word Arena Tour" comes to Chaifetz Arena for six performances Dec. 7-9.

For the first time in DC Comics' history, Batman - the world's most popular DC Super Hero - is now an all-new, live-action arena spectacular which is taking the world by storm. BATMAN LIVE is a 15 million dollar stage production with an original story featuring a 43 strong cast of actors and circus trained acrobats, a 3D Gotham City landscape, a bespoke symphonic score, custom-built state-of-the-art stage, a 100-foot bat-shaped LED video wall, pyrotechnics and the impressive Batmobile, designed especially for the show by legendary racing car designer Gordon Murray.

Faithfully adapted from the DC Comics characters and stories, BATMAN LIVE focuses on Robin's quest for justice, which leads him to follow in the footsteps of his hero — the mysterious vigilante known as Batman — much to the dismay of his protective guardian, billionaire Bruce Wayne, whom the audience knows is secretly Batman.

This dynamic triangle resolves itself in a non-stop thrill-ride across Gotham City that transforms Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson into the legendary crime-fighters, Batman and Robin. The adventure transports the audience from the Big Top of Haly's Circus to the depths of Arkham Asylum, and from the glittering peaks of the Penguin's Iceberg Lounge to the subterranean wonders that await inside the Batcave.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
