Jim Steinman’s smash-hit rock musical Bat Out of Hell roars back into the West End, playing at the Dominion Theatre following a sold-out world premiere at the London Coliseum. Based on Steinman’s iconic collaborations with legendary singer Meat Loaf, Bat Out of Hell is the romantic, adventurous story of forbidden love.

Originally premiering at Manchester’s Opera House, the production played a limited season at the London Coliseum in summer 2017, which extended due to popular demand. After tremendous success in London, which included swiping the Evening Standard Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical, Bat Out of Hell transferred to the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto.

Set in a wild, dystopian world, Bat Out of Hell the Musical follows Strat, a rebellious youth who has fallen in love with the daughter of the tyrannical Falco, Raven. A high-octane adventure that soars through Steinman’s impressive back-catalogue, Strat embarks on a romantic journey against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city. Featuring songs such as “I’d Do Anything for Love… (But I Won’t Do That)”, “Dead Ringer For Love”, “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” and, of course, “Bat Out of Hell”, this rock ‘n’ roll musical is guaranteed to set the stage on fire.

Original casting included award-winner Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven, alongside Rob Fowler as Falco, Sharon Sexton as Sloane, Aran MacRae as Tink and Danielle Steers as Zahara. Additional cast members included Dom Hartley-HarrisGiovanni Spano, Patrick Sullivan, Jemma Alexander, Emily Benjamin, Stuart Boother, Georgia Carling, Natalie Chua, Jonathan Cordin, Amy Di Bartolomeo, Jordan Lee Davies, Olly Dobson, Hannah Ducharme, Phoebe Hart, Rosalind James, Michael Naylor, Eve Norris, Tim Oxbrow, Andrew Patrick-Walker, Benjamin Purkiss, Anthony Selwyn, Courtney Stapleton and Ruben Van Keer.

Directed by Obie Award-winning director Jay Scheib, Bat Out of Hell features choreography by Emma Portner, set design by Jon Bausor and costume design by Jon Bausor and Meentje Nielsen, as well as lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, sound design by Gareth Owen, video design by Finn Ross and orchestrations by Steve Sidwell.

Steinman has a long history in musical theatre, first collaborating with Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1996 to provide the lyrics for Whistle Down the Wind, as well as composing the music for European musical Dance of the Vampires, which opened in Vienna in 1997. He is also well-known for penning the Boyzone hit “No Matter What”.

Returning to the London stage due to phenomenal demand, Bat Out of Hell the Musical transfers to the Dominion Theatre for an electrifying run beginning April 2nd 2018.
