Bat Out of Hell The MusicalWinner of the Evening Standard Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical, Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical has already broken box office records at London’s Dominion Theatre, taking £350,000 on the first day of on-sale. The musical returns to London’s West End in 2018, with performances at the Dominion Theatre from Monday 2 April.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical wowed critics and public alike when it played limited seasons at Manchester Opera House and London Coliseum earlier this year. It currently has audiences rocking out in Toronto, where performances will end on 7 January 2018.

  1. This is seriously good news.
    Congratulations to all involved in helping to achieve the award.
    Saw it twice at Manchester and once in London before it moved to Canada.
    So very pleased for its success
    Sincerely hope it comes back “up North” at some point in the not too distant future.
    Every man and woman with any blood at all moving through their veins deserves a chance to enjoy this!
    Hope the CD is re-stocked fort he UK and that a DVD isn’t ruled out.
    Rock on!
