I live in a major metropolitan area full of both ironic hipsters and nerds. So obviously Batman Live, the pretty trippy stage show, will be coming to my town, right?
NO! WRONG! In fact it won’t even be getting anywhere close to us East Coast elites. Instead it’ll only be getting as far as Missouri.
That’s too bad because by all accounts, this show is almost bafflingly insane. It’s got living Joker teeth, glowstick fights, Robin in a hamster ball, and these are just the video previews that have been released. Apparently it tells the story of Robin and is, by all accounts, so utterly crazy it actually becomes a great time.
Here’s a video:
