| Best Starkid production yet!
I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who's a comic book fan to go and see this Youtube-musical. And if you're not, well, I still recommend it.

Holy Musical B@man is the 5th internet musical from Starkid, a talented team of young actors, writers and other rising stars, who became famous after their "A Very Potter Musical" unexpectedly went viral in 2009. This success allowed Team Starkid to evolve into Starkid Productions, a successful media company with soundtrack albums, dvds, a concert tour, and of course more geekily-themed internet musicals. With Holy Musical B@man, the Starkids show us that they are obviously the masters of this genre.

In short, B@man perfectly combines humour, singing, dancing, friendship and superheroes.

It's a brilliant homage to the quirky world of comic book heroes. The humour is constantly superb. And the puns, oh my, the puns. If you like puns, you're in for a treat. If you didn't like puns before, you will now - trust me, these jokes will make you snicker. The songs are catchy and fit the theme perfectly. Stylistically, the show looks professional and works really well.

But it's the characters, and the actors portraying them, that really give this show its warm heart. Musically, the entire cast is very impressive, with Dylan Saunders and Jaime Lyn Beatty as the best vocalists in my opinion. Jaime Lyn, who played two relatively minor characters, was one of the two show-stealers to me. The other one, of course, was Starkid newcomer Jeff Blim as Batman's sugarcoated arch enemy Sweet Tooth. He was breathtakingly brilliant in his role, best described as a combination of Heath Ledger's Joker and Jim Carrey's Mask. Joe (Joseph?) Walker was the perfect choice for the lead role of Batman. He's spot-on and hilarious, and so is his Batman-voice. Brian Holden as Superman is just as perfect. The return of Chris Allen was another wonderful thing, although I'm still convinced Allen is actually secretly Michael Caine. But my favourite thing in this entire musical is Batman and Nick Lang's Robin. Because they get it. Their relationship is where the comics really come to life on the stage.

Which brings me back to my intro. Whether you know anything about superheroes or not, you should watch this, because you will love it.

9.5/10
