Having previously teased the possibility of a 2018 return, Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical has confirmed that it will return to London’s Dominion Theatre next year, playing from 2 April.
The epic Meatloaf musical concluded its run in Toronto this past weekend and, following its run at the London Coliseum earlier in the year, initially confirmed on its Twitter feed (on Friday 1 December) that it will once again storm the West End next Spring. This has been followed up by a formal announcement today (Monday 4 December).
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.
Based on the most influential albums of Jim Steinman’s storied collaboration with singer Meat Loaf, Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is a rollicking rock ‘n’ roll adventure that tears through over 15 of Steinman’s songs, including I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), Dead Ringer For Love, You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad and the iconic titular anthem Bat Out Of Hell.
Stars Andrew Polec (who played Strat in the original West End run) and Christina Bennington (Raven) are reported to be in positive negotiations to recreate their roles, but casting remains to be confirmed.
Such was the popularity of the show’s initial London Coliseum run, its run was extended by an additional fortnight, so fans will be delighted that #BATisBack.
Initial booking is from Monday 2 April 2018 to 28 July 2018.
