Bat Out of Hell



Nominated for eight WhatsOnStage Awards in 2018, Jim Steinman’s smash-hit musical Bat Out of Hell returns to London at the historic Dominion Theatre!

Bat Out of Hell went on to become one of the most successful and iconic rock albums of all time; but it was originally written as a musical. 40 years after its release, Jim Steinman’s exhilarating tale of star-crossed lovers ‘changed the way musicals are staged forever’ (North West End) as a boundary-pushing spectacle featuring thrilling performances of legendary hits by Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf.

Bat Out of Hell takes place in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, as the forever-young Strat and his out-of-control gang The Lost roam the streets under the rule of the tyrant Falco. One day, Strat’s bleak existence is broken when he falls for Falco’s daughter Raven. Explosive and full of belting tracks, this ‘jaw-dropping spectacle’ is a full-throttle ride towards the rock and roll dream, punctuated by love and rebellion.

The musical features 17 of Meat Loaf’s greatest hits, such as ‘I’d Do Anything for Love’, ‘You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth’, and obviously, ‘Bat Out of Hell’.

Age Guidance: Due to strong language, partial nudity and scenes of a sexual nature, the show is not recommended for children under the age of 12. Parental guidance should be used for children aged between 12 and 16. Children under the age of 5, unfortunately, cannot be admitted.
