posie has no particular reputation at present
Batman live

Anyone know if they're really strict with the age requirements? I couldn't see anything with regards to minimum age at the time of booking but later after I received the tickets I see it is 6 years old - my son is not yet 6 But when I checked it out, it's billed as a family show. He loves comics and thought this would be perfect

Tickets cost 300CHF and now I'm nervous that they won't let my son in. Any advice??
Thanks

Re: Batman live

According to the website, it's for the whole family, from 3 to 93, so you shouldn't worry - turn up and have a great time.

Quote:
Für welche Alters- und Interessengruppen ist diese Show geeignet?
Diese Show wurde speziell für die ganze Familie entwickelt und richtet sich an Menschen im Alter zwischen 3 und 93 Jahren! Einige Kinder werden sicherlich von den speziellen Effekten und Sounds überrascht werden, aber die Show verspricht beste Unterhaltung und spricht mit Akrobatik, Stunts, Illusionen, Schauspiel und symphonischer Musik Jung und Alt gleichermassen an.
Google translate:

"Which ages and interests this show is suitable?
This show is specifically designed for the whole family and is aimed at people aged between 3 to 93 years! Some children will certainly be surprised by the special effects and sounds, but the show promises great entertainment and speaks with acrobatics, stunts and illusions, drama and symphonic music to young and old alike."

If it has six years minimum age on the ticket, then go with a printout from the website, but if your son looks six, I'm sure that they're not into checking I.D.'s, but if they do contest entry, then give them the webpage copy print.

Re: Batman live

The idea of Batman Live is anathema to me and I've not seen it, so take these words with a pinch of salt, but Batman can go to very dark places. The original Batman is not a Tom & Jerry-esque storyline and the show deserves nuking if it doesn't address why Batman became Batman.

Batman rocks. It ought not be 'family friendly', but what do I know, I'm just a fan...

Re: Batman live

If your son does get scared during the show and you decide to leave early.

Make sure you dont go out the back entrance into a dark alley........


cheers

The 20-Tens, of course! It's all special effects and dance numbers! It's great!

It's Rock 'n' Roll! But it's not a musical

""What it is really is rock and roll," Anthony Van Laast said at the launch. "Almost all of us come from a rock and roll background, we know we can fill an arena, we can do the whizz bangs and the special effects – all we needed was a really good yarn as the backbone of the show, and we've got that. It's not a musical."
