ArtsWest goes tabloid

Bat Boy hand.jpgAt left (photo by Matthew Durham, courtesy ArtsWest), it’s the amazing Bat Boy, no longer just the figment of active tabloid imaginations (RIP, Weekly World News). ArtsWest‘s season opens next Wednesday with the Seattle premiere of “Bat Boy: The Musical” (tickets available online). For the theater-intrigued, one free event during the “Bat Boy” run is particularly worth noting: Next Monday @ 7:30 pm, ArtsWest’s director of theater will be among those participating in what AW describes as “a lively discussion about music as a character, musicals as social commentary, and how this all relates to the strange boy with pointy ears at the heart of “Bat Boy” … Zinovitch is directing “Bat Boy” and has something to say about the show in this new post on the ArtsWest MySpace blog.

    We’ve really been looking forward to this! The managing editor of the late Weekly World News is an old friend of ours, so we have a soft spot in our head for Bat Boy, Bigfoot, et al. Sniff.

    I’m looking forward to it too. A friend of mine used to work for the paper. Gave him $ to make up stories. Occasionally he would pose for photos. If you’ve ever seen the photo of Bill Clinton with the Alien from the paper, my friend was the alien.

Sorry, comment time is over.
