Steven Stanley at Stage Scene LA says: "Jeff Leatherwood (who recently starred in Sierra Rep's production of Altar Boyz) manages to capture all of Edgar's quirky charm, sadness, hope, and romantic heroism." and "A soulful Larry Wiering brings the house down with his revival preacher's A Joyful Noise."

Jim Farber at Daily Breeze recognized "professional-level performances" and the "compassionate renderings by Leatherwood and Hunter to the pure camp of Larry Wiering's Mrs. Taylor in drag".

Mark Wells at Issues to Ponder says: "Bat Boy The Musical is a good evening's worth of entertainment, the price is right, and it will have you laughing and thinking about some things." and "I have been to many different performances of a great number of plays, comedies, musicals, and classics and I was impressed with The Relevant Stage's cast and content of the production."
