After seeing the show which was the best. The music, cast and production was flawless.I awaited the cast cd and i was not disappointed. The music and lyrics are so well written with many styles of music to suit all.If you have not seen the show after hearing the cd you will want to. If you have seen BAT Boy you will want to seeit again.

I bought the CD before I went to the show and was not disappointed with either. The CD does not contain all of the songs from the show and some of the wording has changed since the original recording but this aside it is a definate must have. Deven May is superb as Bat Boy, in fact there is not a bad performance from anyone.
If you haven't seen the show yet book now! It's only on until the end Oct 2004 so don't miss out.

I HAVE TO GET TO GOTHAM TO SEE THIS ONE! 2 Sept. 2001
By Robert Edler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I originally heard about a musical named BATBOY opening, I imagined something about baseball or caped crusaders. (Hey, I'm from Missouri so it is easier to imagine that than a musical based on a supermarket tabloid headline. ) Imgine my surpirse when I listen to the album. I LOVED IT!
And after my terrible review of the new ROCKY HORROR SHOW, I find it amazing that I'm giving my highest rave reviews to BAT BOY. Especially, since BAT BOY is a direct decendant of ROCKY plus a little LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, HAIR and even some Lloyd Webber's original JOSEPH. Actually Laurence O'Keefe, the composer, has probably written the most varied musical score since JOSEPH. He doesn't miss a musical style and he uses them all well.
The entire cast is first rate and production of the CD is outstanding. And be it musical comedy, tragedy or drama I recommend it to you whole heartedly!
By the way, RCA (BMG) seems to be the only major recording company willing to take a chance on the musical theater these days, and they are to be commended for it. Now, if they'll only release a few more of the old shows whose masters they still have tucked away in their vaults.

Hold Me BAT BOY 11 Aug. 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this CD on a dare, and I couldn't be more happier with it. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. (Well actually I was expecting a very badly written musical that had songs that... well in a word....) This CD FAR exceeded my expectations and then some. It is a very thought provoking story about the pressures of being different. First they hate you, then they grow to love you then someone who you thought was your friend frames you for the murder of two people and eveyone wants you dead. Sound tricky? It's not. Especially the way Laurence O'Keefe blends many different style of music into one heck of a show. There is a very nice eclectic mix of styles on this CD. There is your Broadway Standard (Show You A Thing or Two), Country (Another Dead Cow, one of my personal favorites), Gospel Number (A Joyful Noise) and even an "I'm Going Crazy and Listening to the Voices In My Head" Song intermixed with the Act 1 Finale (Comfort and Joy.) If this doesn't make you want to click your mouse button and buy this CD, then I don't know what will. Oh yeah and by the way, I really like this and I think you will too.

A Mountain's No Place To Raise Cows... 13 Oct. 2004
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to see "Bat Boy" live in Minneapolis, and just had to buy this delightful soundtrack featuring the New York company as a keepsake. The story, based on a character from the "Weekly World News," dramatizes the life of a bat-human hybrid in a story equal parts "My Fair Lady" and "Tommy." The musical numbers are universally well written, extremely witty, and the performers on the CD have excellent vocal range and intonation.

The plot of the play will reveal itself quickly by listening to the songs, several of which are real standouts. "Hold Me, Bat Boy" (and its reprise) is so catchy that you will not be able to get it out of your head for weeks. "Mrs. Taylor's Lullaby" is perhaps the most amusing song on the CD, while "A Home For You", "Comfort And Joy", and "Inside Your Heart" are great classical musical vehicles designed to show off vocal talent to excellent effect.

To my knowledge this is the only musical that is based on a recurring tabloid character (still featured in the "Weekly World News") and touches on themes of evil veterinarians and bovine plagues all the while maintaining a tongue-in-cheek ambience alongside excellent (yet austere) production values.

The music from "Bat Boy" is great, the cast is excellent, and the plot is a one of a kind. "Bat Boy" is a wonderful show to see live, and I recommend it and this CD to anyone, especially those with an offbeat sense of humor.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 28 Jun. 2001
By Emile Dawisha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What a fantastic musical! I have not seen it(yet!) but being a big fan of Kerry Butler, I bought the cd with the intention of listening to her first recording. Although I thought Kerry was fantastic, I couldn't get enough of the whole cd! It reminds me a little bit of "Rent" and "Rocky" and is so original and funny. The music is WONDERFUL-if you want to hear an impressive sample of rock, gospel, typical boradway showtunes, touching ballads and duets, and even a little rap, this is the cd for you. The songs I especially love are "Hold me bat boy," "Show you a thing or two," "Comfort and Joy," "Inside your heart," and "Three Bedroom House." THe leads are AMAZING!!!!!!! Buy this cd-you won't regret it!!!!!!!!

Simply brilliant! 2 Oct. 2004
By Paul Vintner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love Bat Boy! To be honest, I'm quite obsessed. This is an amazing cast recording featuring amazing talents especially by Kerry Butler (Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors~revival) who can make anything funny. What I like most about Bat Boy though is that it knows it's totally insane and you'd never think it'd work but it does (and I must say, very successfully). With hilarious lyrics, fun, upbeat music, and an extraordinary cast, Bat boy is an intelligent show that's much better than most Broadway shows. It's just a shame it never made it to the Great White Way.
