Default Batman: The Musical (Shadows in the Gloom)

BATMAN: SHADOWS IN THE GLOOM


I wrote this a couple of years ago. I'll admit at first I took a break because I thought it would need some work before being released, it was originally supposed to come out alongside TDKR premiering. Then it got lost in the shuffle. Years later I decided to give it another read and readily enjoyed it a lot. Turns out, I had just read it too many times back then to judge accurately. There are some hiccups, but overall I still think it's very entertaining. What I was going for was asking the question -- could it be accomplished without it coming off as hokey or cheesy? And I think I accomplished that challenge and readily pulled it off. It's gothic, morose, dark. And in the end - it feels Batman and that was main thing I wanted with this. It also contains some graphic violence which separates it from some other musicals.

INSPIRATIONS:
- Sweeney Todd
- Phantom of the Opera
- Jekyll and Hyde

I just have one final note to add, due to when it was written there are some sequences detailing audience participation. This was my favorite element with The Lion King and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark which had Spider-Man popping up around the theater to fight crime. Sadly, these sequences may read darker than I originally intended due to the tragedy now sadly connected to the most recent film franchise. These scenes were there before and they've been kept in. I just thought something needed to be said here.

And here it is:
