There’s only one way to stage a Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf musical: with blood, thunder and all-out rock ‘n roll. Based on these rehearsal photos, there’s plenty of all of the above on the way…
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.
The production plays a limited season at the London Coliseum from 5 June to 22 July.
For the stage musical, the legendary and award-winning Jim Steinman has incorporated iconic songs from his Bat Out Of Hell albums, including You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs, What Part of My Body Hurts The Most and Not Allowed To Love. The show stars Andrew Polec as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven, with Rob Fowler as Falco and Sharon Sexton as Sloane.
Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical has a book by Jim Steinman, with early writing by Stuart Beattie, music and lyrics by Jim Steinman, direction by Jay Scheib and choreography by Emma Portner. It is produced by David Sonenberg, Michael Cohl, Randy Lennox and Tony Smith.
