Parking was easy at HP Pavilion. $15 but that is expected at most venues.

Amazing costumes and set up (huge screen makes you part of the show).
Not enough rythme in the show, you can get bored sometimes.
The performance itself is mediocre.
My kids enjoyed it, so I guess that's the most important.

Description

Batman Live is a visually stunning, state-of-the-art production, which brings Batman, a host of iconic characters, and the settings from the famed world of DC comics, live and on stage.  

The show features impressive stunts, pyrotechnics, illusions and video screen sequences.  With a 42-member cast, Batman Live has a new, original storyline that features Batman, his trusty counterpart Robin, tireless butler Alfred and a host of other favorite Batman characters. Additional favorites include villains such as The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and The Penguin. As audiences enter the arena, they are greeted by a 3D Gotham City landscape complete with buildings, soundscape, and video animation, setting the scene for the story to come.

The magnitude of the production becomes apparent the first moment a full symphonic score is heard and a 105-foot bat-shaped LED video wall comes to life, enhancing the action on a custom-built stage. Another exciting element is the eye-catching, all-new Batmobile, designed especially for the show.

 

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. _Batman Live is, at its heart, a poignant coming-of-age story. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson must learn to overcome their own fears and forge their own family - with the help of Police Commissioner James Gordon and Bruce’s trusted butler, Alfred Pennyworth - if they’re going to survive the combined forces of Batman’s larger-than-life rogues’ gallery, some of the most famous and beloved villains of the 20th century.  

The show is 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.
