It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
The musical had its world premiere at the London Coliseum in June 2017, after a run of previews in Manchester, and it was announced during the show's final performance of the original London run that the musical would return to London at some point of the next year.
Bat Out of Hell is about Strat, the leader of The Lost, a group of people who never grow up. Strat falls for Raven, the daughter of Falco, tyrannical ruler of the dystopian town, Obsidian. The musical features hit songs from the Bat Out of Hell albums, performed by rock legend Meat Loaf, including “I Would Do Anything For Love”, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”, “All Revved Up With No Place to Go” and “Bat Out of Hell”.
The original production starred Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven. The cast went on to take the production to Toronto, and according to the Daily Mail, could return for the London return.
Bat Out of Hell is at the Dominion Theatre from 2nd April 2018.
Bat Out of Hell Tickets are available from Monday 4th December.
