Based on a story in The Weekly World News, Bat Boy: The Musical is a show about a half-boy/half-bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. When he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded people of Hope Falls, they turn on him. Soon the entire town will hear the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin. At a time when we strongly lump our demons into stereotypes based on nationality, creed or sexual orientation and de-humanize them to gain safety in numbers, shows like Bat Boy jar us awake with laughter and the moral obligation we have to all of our brothers and sisters.
