“Being insane, I would imagine much of the time he doesn’t see things the way the rest of the world does. I would guess from tonight’s performance that he’s pretty well aware of that. So if Harley throws him a wild enough assertion—like that he can’t kill people tonight because he hasn’t whistled the score to HMS Pinafore—he’ll accept it as logical precisely because it makes no sense to him.” –Fun and Games

2014 will mark the world premiere of “Fathers of the Dark Knight” an ambitious theatrical production about both the fictional heroes and villains of Gotham and the real-life men who created them. The play – which will fittingly open in New York City, the inspiration for Gotham – seeks to correct the failure of history to recognize the contributions two men, writer Bill Finger and artist Jerry Robinson, made to the world of Bob Kane’s Batman. The audience will get to watch the creative process of Kane, Finger and Robinson brought to life in two different ways: On one side of the stage, we see the three men in Kane’s apartment, gradually bringing Gotham and its colorful cast of characters into being. On the other side, those very characters will fight the never-ending battle of good versus evil, as Batman takes on villains such as Joker, Riddler and Catwoman with the help of heroes like Batgirl and Robin.
Fathers of the Dark Knight” is a not-for-profit stage production documented on their website, including cast appearances at New York Comic Con.
