Batboy The Musical by Laurence O'Keefe and Keith Farley
Batboy the Musical by Laurence O'Keefe and Keith Farley and Brian Fleming is based on a story in the Weekly World News Tabloid about a half-boy, half-bat, found in a cave and dubbed "Batboy."
The musical debuted in 1997 at Tim Robbin's Actor Gangs Theatre in Los Angeles and later won Best Musical for it's Off Broadway production in Union Square in New York City in 2001.
Batboy is found in a cave by spelunkers and brought home to their Mother, who wants to adopt the creature. The townsfolk react with fear and ignorance toward the unusual creature and blame the cattle plague on his arrival. The batboy yearns for acceptance and tries to join society, only to be faced with hatred and violence.
The book deals with serious themes such as hypocrisy,acceptance, forgiveness,racism, revenge and scapegoating, but even these heavy topics are punctured by slapstick, surrealism,camp horror and irony.
The music covers many styles, including rock, rap, horror movie film scores and opera. Laurence Keefe also composed the music to Legally Blonde.
The New York Times review stated,"It's remarkable what (this shows) incredible wit can accomplish."
