Bat Out of Hell The Musical

After a smash-hit, award-winning world premiere at the London Coliseum, Jim Steinman’s sizzling new musical Bat Out of Hell returns to the West End, featuring a stellar back-catalogue of his collaborations with hit singer Meat Loaf. Expect legendary songs such as “I’d Do Anything for Love… (But I Won’t Do That)”, "Paradise By The Dashboard Light", “Dead Ringer For Love” and many, many more.

Set in post-apocalyptic Manhattan (now called "Obsidian") where many of the characters are unable to age, the production follows the forever-eighteen-year-old Strat. He's the leader of a gang who falls for Raven, the daughter of the city's tyrannical leader. This is their tale of forbidden love.

Bat Out of Hell is a soaring, high-octane triumph which has been delighting audiences since its London opening in 2017.
Booking until 5 January 2019

Built on the site of a former Leper Hospital and the Meux Brewery, which saw eight people die in a beer flood, the Dominion Theatre has some rather grave roots and is said to be haunted to this day! In the 1930's the venue was used as a cinema, screening films such as The Phantom of The Opera, The Sound of Music and West Side Story right up until the 1980’s, where is began to house large live musicals.

A series of major theatrical extravaganzas have played at the theatre, including The Judy Garland Show (1957) and Jackie Mason: Brand New! (1993). Quickly, popular musicals began to arrive at the Dominion, including Grease (1993-1996), Scrooge (1996-1997) and Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1997-1999), with smaller shows such as Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake and Tango Passion (2000) also gracing the stage.

The Dominion Theatre has also hosted the prestigious Royal Variety Performance on four separate occasions, and has been regularly used for the Hillsong Sunday Service since 2005.

In 2002, the venue finally made its name, hosting the unprecedented smash-hit success of Queen's musical We Will Rock You, which played at the theatre for an impressive twelve years until 2014. Following the musical's closure, a disappointingly brief revival of Evita (2014) played, before embarking on a UK tour. Irving Berlin's White Christmas played until the end of 2014.

2015 saw a range of eclectic productions pass through the theatre, including Frozen Sing-Along, Aliens Love Underpants, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games and Elf! The Musical (2015-2016), starring Ben Forster and Kimberley Walsh.

2016 productions included Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds and The Bodyguard, starring pop superstar Beverley Knight. Broadway musical An American in Paris transferred to the Dominion Theatre in March 2017, featuring music by George and Ira Gershwin and earned five-star reviews from critics. Closing in January 2018, the venue later saw a strictly limited season of Shen Yun arrive.

Jim Steinman's Bat Out of Hell the Musical (2018) arrived at the Dominion Theatre and continues to play to packed-out audiences.
