Falcon’s BAT BOY Earns 4 Star LCT Rating

FT_Bat BoyPanelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Falcon Theatre’s production of BAT BOY the MUSICAL with a 4 Star Rating.

BAT BOY is the off-beat musical ripped from the tabloid headlines, at times hilarious and at times touching, of a boy raised by bats and his struggle for humanity.

Panelists called the show “a bizarre, poignant, satirical, thoughtful and funny show full of a ‘bat-tery’ of jokes and clever lyrics.” Lead actor Robert Breslin, who played Edgar, the Bat Boy, was praised: “his physicality and bat mannerisms were spot dead on; he deftly took his character through all the stages of the process of going from bat to boy.” The entire ensemble was commended: “terrific…they really nailed the hysteria of this small town.”

BAT BOY continues through May 31st. Tickets can be purchased at www.falcontheater.net.

League of Cincinnati Theatre panelists evaluate productions on a 5 star scale and recommend shows at either a 4 star or 5 star level. Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT gala in the spring.

The League of Cincinnati Theatres was founded in 1999 to strengthen, nurture and promote Cincinnati’s theatre community. LCT provides its member companies and individual members with education, resources and services to enhance the quality and exposure of the theatre community in Cincinnati and increase community awareness, attendance and involvement.
