If there’s one thing we learned from Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical‘s explosion onto the West End scene last year, it’s that the Bat likes nothing more than a big opening.
So having enjoyed the no-holds-barred, scorching musical’s second West End gala night – this time to mark the show’s opening at the Dominion Theatre, where it’s just extended booking to 27 October – we met up with the cast to find out how Bat Out Of Hell is back, and bigger than ever.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical was written by songwriting legend, Jim Steinman. Jim is famed for writing Meat Loaf’s album Bat Out Of Hell – one of history’s best-selling albums having sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
Taking place in Obsidian – a post-apocalyptic world led by the tyrannical ruler, Falco – Bat Out Of Hell tells the story of the eternally young Strat and his wild gang – known as The Lost. While roaming the streets, Strat has a chance encounter with Raven, Falco’s daughter, which leads to a full-throttled love affair packed with youthful rebellion and rock and roll.
