Bat Boy: The Musical

Providence College Bat Boy the Musical

The Providence College students in Bat Boy: The Musical are probably all too young to remember the Weekly World News, the surreal black-and-white tabloid that kept supermarket shoppers abreast on the whereabouts of a creature named Bat Boy. That doesn’t matter, though. On a bleak West Virginia mountain with a veterinarian but no human doctor, three kids go creeping in a cave and discover a creature that’s half bat, half boy. He’s brought home to their parents – dad’s the vet – and they decide to keep him as a sort of pet project, until some malnourished cows start disappearing and the townsfolk want answers. Daniel Jameson was a dweeby and charming Bat Boy – I liked how he was about six inches taller than the villain –  though the sound in this production was so bad that the lyrics were all muddied any time more than one person tried to sing at once. The unraveling gets a little hideous, though the creature’s backstory is explained cleverly via animation.
