A unique action-packed live arena show is the product of Warner Brothers, Consumer Products, DC Entertainment and Water Lane Productions. For the first time in DC Comic history, Batman Live brings Batman and a host of iconic characters in a visually stunning production to North America.

The original script, written by Allan Heinberg, features a 42 member cast concentrating on Robin’s quest for justice. At its heat, Batman Live is a coming-of-age story. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson must learn to overcome their fears to survive the combined forces of Batman’s notorious villains.

The thrill ride across Gotham City transports audiences from the depths of Arkham Asylum to the glittering peaks of the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge.

A 3D Gotham City landscape complete with buildings, soundscape and video animation, sets the stage for the production. An LED 105-foot bat shaped video wall comes to life to enhance the action on the custom built stage. Many more surprises are in store for the visitors of Gotham City as the original story created exclusively for the show is unleashed on the Resch Center stage.

Batman is a strong, but not indestructible, cultural phenomenon.
