In this campy, sexy and silly parody, Batman and Robin are put to the ultimate test of intellect when they learn that Batgirl has been captured by the reprehensible Riddler! Now the Dynamic Duo must travel through the streets of Gotham to retrieve the Riddler’s clues from all of Batman’s enemies before midnight. Join the Caped Crusaders on this quest, featuring sultry burlesque numbers and a full roster of vile villains (including Catwoman, Two-Face, The Penguin, and even Egghead!)
Writer Jeremy M. Eden quotes, “It’s a show that combines three of my favorite things: Batman and boobs. It’s the perfect blend of action, satire, and camp. Generations old and new can find humor in it, whether it be a laugh of nostalgia or detached irony. And hopefully it will help people appreciate the oft-maligned series from the 60’s.”
Critical acclaim for the show includes:
“The whole cast show sexy confidence and solid comedic timing, creating a Gotham City that’s a lot more fun than Christopher Nolan’s.” -Chicago Reader
“There’s no better use of your time, money, and airline miles than getting out to see this thing at least once. A rich, pop-geek-friendly comedy show.” -Kickingtheseat.com
“This isn’t Shakespeare, and it isn’t a strip club. But it is a barrel of sexy fun! I laughed. I laughed some more. I drank beer. I laughed even more. And I saw lots of boobies. As good as Christopher Nolan’s latest Batman installment is, this show made a far more memorable evening. Enthusiastic thumbs up!” -Ray’s Chicago Area Burlesque
