In a huge double-whammy, Team StarKid has released a video containing information fans have long been awaiting – the Youtube release date of their new show, Holy Musical, B@man! and the schedule for their next live tour. Guess what – it’s really soon!

Holy Musical B@man!, which ran in Chicago this March, will premiere online April 13 at 9 p.m. EST. As we reported, fans who attended the performances signed non-disclosure agreements to avoid spoilers leaking online so the production will be a surprise for everyone who wasn’t able to make it to the live show. Team StarKid will be releasing some of the HMB music for free on the day of the première, and appearing at the C2E2 convention in Chicago on April 14.
