Hold onto your hats as Bat Out of Hell Theatre Breaks roar into the West End
Revving the throttle in June 2017 will be the London premiere of Jim Steinman’s new musical Bat Out of Hell using songs from the iconic album of the same name to weave a love story set in post-apocolyptic Manhatten.
The story of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living the rock and roll dream takes its inspiration from the 5th best selling music album in history (with over 43 million sold worldwide : only eight albums have ever acheived sales of over 40m), Bat Out of Hell the Musical is set to explode at the London Coliseum stage for a limited run.
When eternally young Strat falls in love with Raven, he must battle her father, the wicked and tyrannical Falco, to resue her from the palace towers.
This breathtaking new musical that features 17 of larger than life singer Meat Loaf’s greatest hits including I’d Do Anything for Love, Parafdise by the Dashboard, You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth, Dead Ringer for Love and, of course, Bat Out of Hell, plus three new Jim Steinman originals written specially for the show.
The show’s cast will be led by newcomer Andrew Polec as Strat with Christina Bennington as Raven. Rob Fowler takes on the role of Falco and Sharon Sexton as Sloane – check out some rehearsal photos here.
