Sean McCourt: Bat Boy /Wicked#0
Posted: 2/25/06 at 7:36pm
I was just revisitng the Bat Boy days, and I came to the conclusion that I liked Sean McCourt's voice better in Wicked as Elphaba's Father than his major role in Bat Boy as Dr. Thomas Parker. I haven't seen Bat Boy staged like I have Wicked, but I have listened to both recordings numerous times. Any feedback

That's quite an insult. I think he's great on the Bat Boy recording.

He doesn't show off his voice in Wicked, at all. He's Dr. Dillamond, for crying out loud. That gives no leeway for a voice. Plus, his part as the witch's father is about 20 seconds long.

I saw Sean McCourt in Bat boy, and he was perfection. It's too bad you feel that way about his voice. he's wonderful.

I have to buy the Bat Boy recording. I like his voice, but I feel like Wicked is a waste of it.

Buy it! I have nothing to add to this conversation but my undying love of Bat Boy...
Am I cut out to spend my time this way?

Sean McCourt is just beyond talented, in my opinion.

Sean McCourt is a great actor, but whenever I hear him sing, he always sounds like he's straining and/or trying so hard to hit any high notes. It's one thing that's always turned me off about his singing.

Aww, Bat Boy is great! Check it out! It has some really great and catchy songs in it. And it's got a hilarious storyline with it.
No one is alone.

He was in great voice when I saw him in Bat Boy (more than once, so it wasn't just a fluke). He was also hilariously funny in the role of Dr. Parker. I adore him. Really nice guy, too.

You should buy his solo CD to really hear his voice. He actually reminds me a lot of James Taylor on that disc. So if you don't like Mr. Taylor, you might not like an entire CD of Mr. McCourt.

i think he is fantastic. He was awesome as the Wizard during Kristen and Norbert's last performance.
