Bat Out of Hell The Musical

Bat Out of Hell The Musical Tickets

Following a hugely successful run at the London Coliseum in the summer of 2017, Jim Steinman's epic rock and roll theatrical fantasy Bat Out of Hell The Musical made its hugely anticipated return to London at the Dominion Theatre in April 2018.

Probably the biggest rock musical in London since We Will Rock You ran at the Dominion Theatre, the musical is based on one of the most iconic and successful albums in history with an estimated total worldwide sales of over 43 million, Bat Out of Hell. It features hit songs recorded by rock legend Meat Loaf including "I’d Do Anything for Love", "Paradise by the Dashboard Light", "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)", "Dead Ringer For Love" and "Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad" and, of course, the title track “Bat Out of Hell”.

Steinman originally wrote much of the score as part of his new musical Neverland, a sci-fi update of Peter Pan, which had a workshop at the Kennedy Centre in 1977. No stranger to the world of musical theatre, Steinman has provided the score for the internationally successful hit musical Dance of the Vampires (Tanz der Vampire) which continues to play in Europe and was seen on Broadway in 2002, as well as the lyrics for Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Bat Out of Hell The Musical is described as a high octane musical adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love, set against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city adrift from the mainland. Strat, the forever young leader of The Lost, has fallen for Raven, daughter of Falco, the tyrannical, ruler of Obsidian. Will their love be allowed to blossom?

The show originally ran in London at the Coliseum  from 5th June to 22nd August 2017, and starred Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven. Polec went on to win The Stage Debut Award for Best West End Debut for his role, and the pair have returned for the show's latest revival in London.

With a book by Jim Steinman and Stuart Beattie and music and lyrics by Jim Steinman, Bat Out of Hell the Musical is directed by Jay Scheib and features choreography by Emma Portner, with musical arrangements and supervision by Michael Reed, set design by Jon Bausor and costume design by Meentje Nielsen. The production opened at the Manchester Opera House in 2017, and transferred to the London Coliseum in June.

Bat Out of Hell the Musical is a shot in the arm for modern musical theatre
Monday, March 20, 2017

It's easy to be cynical about jukebox musicals. For the past two decades modern musical theatre in both the UK and USA has been dominated by shows that mine the work of pop music artists and aim to tell the story of the singer or group or use the material to tell a more fragmented story that utilises their most popular billboard titles.
