When do you expect the show to be ready?

Thanks for the props about the costumes. yes, I think they are quite strong too. And the students absolutely LOVE them! I'm biased, of course, but i think they are stronger than the Batman Live Arena Show costumes as well. As always, they felt the need to re-invent the looks of these classic characters. Where as I worked to do faithful interpretations of what worked in the comic books for over seven decades. I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

With the proper shadowy lighting, atmosphere, and mood, I remain convinced that spandex heroes, heroines, (and villains) still work beautifully. And they will lend themselves splendidly to the heightened reality of stage.

Depending on how our fund-raising goes (for building sets and securing rehearsal space etc.) I hope to be ready before the winter with my students.
