Bat Boy: The Musical - Westchester Sandbox Theatre
January 26, 2013 - Mamaroneck

Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. presents "Bat Boy: The Musical." Story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe. Directed by Michael J. Mirra. Musical direction by Mary Ann Ivan; choreographed by Theresa Burns. Based on a story ripped straight from The Weekly World News tabloid, "Bat Boy: The Musical" is a faux-horror musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature who is rescued from a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, and taken in by the empathetic wife of the local veterinarian. "Edgar," as he's named, quickly learns to speak and act in civilized ways as a "normal" boy - even falling in love for the first time. Danger looms, however, when a murderous rampage sweeps Hope Falls, the town learns of a deep, dark secret, and the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin is revealed. This off-kilter satire, which will reunite the director and choreographer behind the Westchester premiere of "Reefer Madness!", offers clever send-ups to other celebrated musicals, a hilarious book, surprising twists and turns of plot, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast. To purchase tickets, go to brownpapertickets.com/event/298524, or call 800-838-3006 and mention "Bat Boy." Through January 26.

MAX MAVEN THINKING IN PERSON: AN EVENING OF KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING - Emelin Theatre
January 26, 2013 - Mamaroneck

"Max Maven Thinking In Person: An Evening of Knowing and Not Knowing" is not exactly a one-man show, because it involves hundreds of minds...including yours. Recently, the show had a successful off-Broadway run in New York. People magazine hailed Max Maven's work as "a new form of participatory theater." The New York Times observed that Max's "category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art." The Los Angeles Times stated that Maven's "improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism." We're not sure exactly what that's supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree. Magic magazine named Maven one of the 20th century's 100 most influential people in the field of theatrical magic, citing his ability for "entertaining and astonishing audiences with his bizarre brand of mental magic...Most of Maven�s mind-boggling feats are accomplished through psychological subterfuge that he himself has cunningly created." Variety magazine summed it up: "The combo of mental marvels and serpent-like humor marks Maven as an original." Note: program not suitable for children younger than 12.
