Meanwhile, Harley Quinn and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker take over Haly Circus, murder its cast and capture Dick. When Batman comes to free his ward, the Joker flees, and Harley is shipped off to Arkham Asylum kicking and screaming. Impressed with Dick's perseverance and acrobatics, Bruce tells Dick about the murder of his own parents, the inspiration he found in the film ''Franchise/{{Zorro}}'', and how he wants to devote his life to fighting evil. He decides to let Dick in on his secret: he is the Batman, and he intends to teach Dick how to make villains pay without resorting to murder.

* TheCastShowoff: Almost all of the actors are acrobats.



* DoingItForTheArt: The show very lovingly includes ''much'' more text and graphics on the screen than anyone could possibly read during the show, all of which corresponds to canon.

* BigEntrance: Happens quite a few times. Batman would often glide onto the stage in a few scenes (at one point, he glides right through a window), the Joker's introduction has him launching out of a giant jack-in-the-box, and during the final battle, [[spoiler:[[BigDamnHeroes Robin glides in to kick some ass and save Batman.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: During the climax, [[spoiler:The Joker attempts to escape Gotham via hot air balloon, abandoning Harley in the process. Furious that he decided to leave her, Harley shoots down his balloon with a '''bazooka''', ultimately preventing his escape. Of course, being Harley, she then runs after the balloon and apologizes for attacking him.]]

The play is well-loved by Batman fans for staying close to the Batman canon, and for including very detailed factoids on the franchise's gadgets and villains -- as well as the sleekest Batmobile seen yet.
