I'm guessing each of you is old enough to remember seeing this 1992 news worthy event on your local grocery store newsstand. It was the story of the summer that year.
In 1997 someone with a lovely sense of humor decided to make it into a musical. It's certainly not for the traditionalist but if you enjoy dancing hillbillies, a tent revival, ambiguous incest, and a good death scene then this play is a must see. It runs through July 24th. Bring your PBR.
I leave you with the opening chorus:
Oh, hold me, Bat Boy! Touch me, Bat Boy!
Help me through the night.
Love me, Bat Boy! Save me, Bat Boy!
Make it all turn out all right!
