I love Meat to bits, but while i don't go to see Bat until next month, I have seen one clip of one of Falco's scenes and there's no way Meat would be able to even act out the part due to his surgeries (to avoid spoilers for those who are avoiding I'll just say Meat wouldn't be able to take both feet off the floor).

I small cameo would be nice for those able to see it, but I could also see that Meat would not want to completely pull attention away from this being Jim's vision if he appeared on stage and everything stopped for applause for ten minutes like a walk on in a sitcom.

Plus Rob's Falco seems to be phenomenal, and I feel like there is something of Jim's irony in the fact that the characters and actors getting a whole host of praise are Rob and Sharon playing Falco and Sloane in a musical about youth and rebellion. It's an irony that Jim could almost have written.
