Bat BoyRipped from the headlines of The Weekly World News,  Bat Boy The Musical is a classic love story with a serious bite.  This delicious twist on the modern day musical comedy tells the amazing story of a strange boy with pointy ears, his struggle to find a place in a world that shuns him, and the love that can create both miracles and madness.

Bat Boy arrives at the West End from Broadway (via the West Yorkshire Playhouse) and stars Deven May.
