The Idaho Shakespeare Festival opened a surprising, irreverent, clever “Bat Boy: The Musical” June 13 to a lightly filled amphitheater.
OK, so you’ve never heard of “Bat Boy.” Don’t let that stop you. This excellent production definitely is worth the gamble.
It is a departure for the Festival, which has produced pretty mainstream musicals in the past. Think “Twilight” meets “Little Shop of Horrors.”
