Like a Bat Out Of Hell, Jim Steinman's Olivier award nominated fire-breathing musical spectacular has announced that they will be closing their doors at the Dominion Theatre on January 5. With the book, music and lyrics by Meatloaf's Jim Steinman, the musical was nominated for an Olivier award in 2018, as well as winning the 2017 Evening Standard Award for Best Musical.
Based on Meatloaf's iconic album, Bat Out of Hell, the musical has had turns at the Manchester Opera House, the London Coliseum and Toronto's Ed Mirvish Theatre before it headed to the West End's Dominion Theatre in April 2018. The production is just about to embark on a North American tour as well as opening a German language version in Oberhausen this November.
In her five-star review of the production Kitty McCarron said that Bat Out of Hell was 'An epic experience' continuing with calling the production 'A high octane thrill ride, this epic stage adaptation of the already fairly epic album(s) is utterly irresistible'.
What is Bat Out Hell about?
Set in a dystopian Manhattan, presided over by a Trump-like figure, Falco. 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, beginning a fantastic romance that sizzles and blooms through the unforgettable score.
Bat Out Of Hell is currently playing at the Dominion Theatre, through to January 5, 2019.
