This Red Hood might make like Red Hood for the first time. Outstanding!

Boo! Joker should have "Damaged" tattooed in Japanese script. How else are we supposed to know that he's unstable lol

Seriously though, I know it's very unlikely, but I hope the stage play gets some kind of video release a la Hamilton.

I might have seen one piece of the animated Batman-Ninja but the play actor looks like a Junior Higher attempting cosplay with a good store-bought kid's costume. Not sure what Robin is about but looks absolutely hilarious and I for one won't be able to take that hairdoo and silly smile seriously. Same for "Red Hood", cheap cosplay with a laundry hamper over the head? And Joker...WTF?

The costumes are decent adaptions of the anime designs.

It's certainly possible that it could get a livestream! It's become a lot more common for stage play productions to do a stream or two since the pandemic started. Usually opening and closing shows are streamed (Sometimes more. TouMyu livestreamed all their shows for their 5th anniversary show back in January and I believe they planned on doing something similar for their fall 2020 show until most of it got cancelled due to a covid case). Though because there are multiple people cast for the same role, I wouldn't be surprised if they streamed a performance for each group.

It's mainly a matter of whether or not you'll need a VPN or if it'll be completely region-locked because the production used e+ and pia which require a JP phone number to verify your account. Sometimes international streams happen, but it's very rare. Keep an eye out on their twitter/website, they may do a stream! It's not guaranteed, but I wouldn't be surprised if they announce something closer to opening night. If anything, there'll probably be a dvd release. Plus, it could end up being streamed on sites like DMM or niconico in the future. That's how I've been able to watch a bunch of past shows without having to pay the high price of the dvds. It's a lot cheaper. I hope this helps! The cast looks really cool! <3
