There are certain things we’ve come to expect when we head to the Flea Theater for a production from their resident company, The Bats. Firstly, we expect a high-paced performance from a talented, energetic troupe of actors. Secondly, we expect a creative approach to live theater, from the moment the curtain rises (figuratively, since there is no actual curtain in either the Sam or Siggy theaters) until the lights go out at the end of the show (literally—I mean, how could there even be a show without any lights?). Thirdly, we expect a story that speaks to the issues of today—even if it’s a story that originated over 2,400 years ago. And if the show also happens to be a musical, we expect everything from the plot to the choreography to prove just how multi-talented The Bats can be.
