Na na na na na na na na na na....

Steven and I wanted to put an episode of the 1960's Batman TV series on a stage. The campy, witty theatricality of the show is delicious. 

 

As we dug into the idea, we couldn't stop scratching at the itch of what this campy, sexy, winkingly misogynistic show meant in a turbulent 1968. What do the winks mean? And what would happen if we gave them a little more space?

 

Well, what happened was a satirical re-imagining of the TV series. Catwoman's evil plan looks suspiciously like the 1968 Miss America Protests (in which awesome ladies crowned a sheep). To stop her, Robin dips a toe into life as a beauty queen, and Barbara Gordon finally gets a taste of life on top. Which is awesome! Mostly. I think. Right? Anyway, roles are swapped, dreams are fulfilled, and jokes are detonated in the name of order, stability, and a peaceful Gotham.

 

We're heading into rehearsal this week, and I can't wait to see what it looks like on feet.
