For the parents who shied away from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy for fear that it was a bit too, uh, dark for the youngsters, we have something for you and your comic-book-loving kids. The Batman Live World Arena Tour is more in line with the traditional POW! BOOM! WHAM! of old-school comic-book Batman than its brooding brother Bale. Plus, the $15 million stage production of Batman Live has all of the bells and whistles that you’d expect in a live spectacular designed for the whole family, including amazing acrobatics, pyrotechnics galore and, of course, a specially designed Batmobile. Grab the Bat-fans in your life and catch up with the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder in the final performance of Batman Live at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Plaza. Tickets are $19.50 to $109.50. Call 214-665-4797 or visit batmanlive.com.
