The line-up of musicals in theatres along Avinguda Paral-lel often includes a lot of familiar names, but seeing a show here can be frustrating because the translation of the old faves means singing along just isn’t on the cards.
But never fear, if you’re in the mood for a night of musical theatre, this month Jocular Theatre Company presents Bat Boy: The Musical. OK, so it’s no Cats or Phantom when it comes to familiarity, but the tale of a small town that has a half-bat/half-boy living in its midst, who has to get by in a world of ‘normal’ people, is described as a cross between My Fair Lady and Edward Scissorhands. In other words, a stonking night out, filled with music, laughs and love.
Perfomances showing on May 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th. (Saturday: 9.30pm, Sunday: 6.30pm). Tickets cost €15 on the door; also available in advance through Atrapalo.
