They've Done Gone Batty at Hillcrest
This is from the original West End production of Bat Boy, but Hillcrest's version doesn't look that far off.
Hillcrest High School sure has trendy tastes in stage productions: The school's latest offering is none other than the award-winning Off-Broadway and London West End hit Bat Boy: The Musical, which is about to become a feature film. Looks and sounds impressive enough, if you can take anything from the five minutes of preview footage just posted to the YouTubes. You have but two days left to see it: tonight and Saturday. I'd go, only I've already made plans with my friend's exterminator to see a different high-school production of Grease. --Robert Wilonsky
