Bat Out of Hell The Musical at London Coliseum has extended its booking to 22nd August 2017.
BAT OUT OF HELL is the breathtaking new musical that tears through Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits including I’d Do Anything for Love, Paradise by the Dashboard Light, Dead Ringer For Love, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad and Bat Out of Hell.
Join the eternally young Strat and his wild gang, The Lost, as they roam the streets of post-apocalyptic Obsidian, ruled by the tyrannical Falco. When Strat falls in love with Falco’s daughter, Raven, he sets out to rescue her in a full throttle tale of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living the rock ‘n’ roll dream.
To say “there are moments of gold and there were flashes of light” is understating the sheer spectacle of this show. Exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure, I enjoyed it so much I’ve booked to see it again. I urge you, go to Hell. Read our 5-star review of Bat Out of Hell The Musical
Directed by award-winning theatre and opera director Jay Scheib, the cast of Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is led by Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven, with Rob Fowler as Falco and Sharon Sexton as Sloane. They are all featured in the photos, alongside Danielle Steers as Zahara and Dom Hartley-Harris as Jagwire, who perform Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad and Dead Ringer.
Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is a romantic 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.
Jim Steinman’s previous musicals include his collaboration with Andrew Lloyd Webber on Whistle Down the Wind, including the hit single released by Boyzone, No Matter What, and the musical Tanz der Vampire, which has been running for 20 years and has been presented in Vienna, Stuttgart, Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, Budapest, Warsaw, St Petersburg and Tokyo.
As with many great works of art, the genesis of the Bat Out Of Hell album occurred across a number of years. One of the songs was written while Steinman was an undergraduate at Amherst College in the late 1960s. In the 1970s, Steinman wrote a theatrical musical that was presented in workshop in Washington D.C. in 1974 and featured many of the songs that would ultimately appear on the Bat Out Of Hell album, which was released in 1977.
Bat Out Of Hell became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. And 16 years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell, which contained the massive hit I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That).
