I didn't see 'Batboy' when TheatreWorks performed it in the recent past, so I didn't want to miss this Gunn production. To be honest, it's an odd and interesting show. No spoilers, here, but it's *NOT* about
(a) a kid who helps MLB players retrieve their bats or
(b) the son of Batman.
It's about a kid raised by bats and he's ...um...different. Noel Carey is brilliant (singing, apparently effortlessly, upside down in perfect harmony at one point) and the other cast members shine as well (David Brown - what a hoot) in a musical that doesn't exactly leave you humming show-tunes. It's edgy, dark, metaphorical and the Gunn group (actors, musicians, dancers, set designers) does a good job with it.
Start your Spring Break right - go see Batboy!
