Winner of Best Musical at London's Evening Standard Awards 2017 Nominated for Best New Musical, Best Direction AND Best Set Design at the West End's What's On Stage Awards 2018
Are you ready San Francisco? The full throttle extravaganza that is Bat Out of Hell the musical is on its way to you this December. Action packed, hard-rocking and with enough sizzling heat to keep you warm all winter, this 2017 Evening Standard Best Musical winner is a guaranteed thrill ride from start to spectacular finish.
Fusing the unforgettable sound of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell album trilogy with breathtaking effects and theatricality, it's already won over audiences from London to Toronto and promises to do the same when it arrives for this much anticipated Holiday engagement!
How do they make that into a musical?! The story of Bat Out Of Hell
Welcome to Obsidian, a dystopian Manhattan presided over by Falco, a recognisable tyrant. At the bottom of his shimmering tower live a group called The Lost, a bunch of rock and roll rebels who stopped ageing at 18. In a whirlwind of shining chrome, spray-on jeans and Doc Martens, their leader Strat falls for his enemy's daughter, the innocent Raven, begining a romance for the ages. It's Peter Pan meets Romeo and Juliet with the raucousness of a rock concert!
With 20 classic bops, including 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light', 'Heaven Can Wait', 'I Would Do Anything for Love', and of course 'Bat Out of Hell' among many more, you won't have to wait too long dust off your leather jackets and rockabilly denim and prepare to rock, hard!
