From Asylum UK: Our friends at Asylum UK went down to the Shaftesbury Theatre in London's West End, where the upcoming production of 'Batman Live' was holding open auditions for the roles of Batman, Robin, Catwoman, the Joker and Harley Quinn.

What they found was 2,000 hopeful auditioners radiating with the kind of heartfelt, sincere enthusiasm that we can barely muster for anything anymore -- the kind of enthusiasm the world needs more of.

Among the homemade Batman outfits and drama students, they found John, a budding Robin from Leeds who'd set off at 3AM from his home in Pontefract in West Yorkshire for his chance to play the Caped Crusader's sidekick. This is his moving story.
