Double Take December: BAT BOY

It’s Double Take December at Musical Cyberspace! Every musical pretty much has something one likes and something one doesn’t in it. This month I’ll be listing one of each for a range of musicals, a different one each day.

Bat Boy

Something I Like: It’s so quirky, immediately infectious and just an interesting show all around – plus, what unusual source material! The show seems as if it will just be a poppy B-movie inspired romp, but it actually has some really moving moments. Shows that are more than they first appear to be are simply marvelous.

Something I Don’t Like: I guess my biggest problem is that the score taken on the whole is rather relentless. It just never really lets up for a second. I wish there was just one moment where it settled down and let things breathe. It made me think of what Little Shop of Horrors might be like without “Somewhere That’s Green”.
