Smeg,

I don't see the problem with repeating the music from one song to another in a musical if the repetition communicates something or draws peoples attention to the relationship of a scene to an overall theme, but I've yet to see how that will work with these two musically similar, but thematically distinct works.

Do we know from Jim's blog or other sources that Bat: The Musical will incorporate the Neverland story? I wouldn't be surprised if Jim and the new creative team goes in a different direction.
