Team Starkid, the Chicago entertainment company known for its relationship with "Glee" star Darren Criss and for its hugely popular series of musical parodies broadcast on YouTube, has come up with its next project: "Holy Musical B@man!"
As was the case with "Starship," (its follow up to "A Very Potter Musical"), Team StarKid will stage the show at the Center on Halsted's Hoover-Leppen Theatre in Chicago (March 16-25), film the production, and then release the production, in chunks, on YouTube. The first part is to be available online in April.
Tickets are to be free of charge and distributed by lottery. In the world of StarKid, the live performance is part of the means toward an Internet end, where hundreds of thousands of followers await.
