THE GREAT BATSBY
When everyone else is queuing up to see The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX, Joe’s Pub is offering a more intimate view of the caped crusader. Taking its form from Elevator Repair Service’s Gatz, Batz is set in a similar cube farm, replacing Fitzgerald’s stylish, secretive millionaire with another mysterious member of the 1 Percent—this one dedicated to striking fear into the hearts of evildoers. The bored office drones take turns acting out the events (and playing with the context) of eight vintage Batman stories, using makeshift props and costumes to become the Joker, Robin, and the Dark Knight himself.
