As New York Comic-Con 2022 approaches, so too does the perfect complement: Bill Finger: Rise of the Bat.
Coming to the Chain Theatre (312 West 36th Street, Fourth Floor) on October 3, 4, 5 2022 at 8 pm, Bill Finger: Rise of the Bat takes a deep dive into the life of Bill Finger, the co-creator of Batman (with Bob Kane), who never received due credit until 2015. The play, written and directed by Lenny Schwartz, with a story by Athena Finger, Alethia Bess Mariotta, and Lenny Schwartz, takes audiences on a journey with Bill from the inception of Batman to his passing away nearly penniless in 1974, to finally receiving his posthumous co-creator credit in 2015. You can read more about the play in this Popverse article.
Tickets available for $15 online and $20 at the door. Tickets may be purchased here.
