About the show

Meat Loaf’s legendary rock album, Bat Out Of Hell arrived at the London Coliseum in June 2017, dazzling audiences with its glitz, glamour and rock 'n' roll. Directed by the award-winning Jay Scheib, the production earned raucous praise from audiences and critics alike, earning four and five star reviews and twice extending its limited season.

Following the story of young rebel Strat, a boy who has fallen in love with the daughter of the despotic Falco, Bat Out of Hell - The Musical sees Strat and the boys in his "Lost" gang go all out to win her heart. In a fast-paced, action-packed romantic adventure, Strat must battle against the dictators of post-apocalyptic city in a tale about rebellion, youth and true love.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical sees the most popular songs from Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman’s classic 1977 album revived, including hits such as "I’d Do Anything for Love… (But I Won’t Do That)", "Bat Out Of Hell" and "Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad", plus many, many more.

The album first started life when Jim Steinman created a rock musical set in a dystopian future based on Peter Pan for a workshop in 1974, but was subsequently performed a few years later. Meat Loaf heard the songs and wanted to record them as part of his next album. When the album was finally released in 1977, it was not initially a hit, however slowly went on to become considered by many as one of the greatest rock albums of all time, with sales of over 43 million copies.

After years of development, original composer Jim Steinman has finally brought the songs to the stage, and Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical played to rave reviews at Manchester's Opera House, before transferring to the London Coliseum. Steinman is a highly successful composer, known for his song writing with Meat Loaf, as well as his various musicals, including Whistle Down the Wind which he co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is directed by award-winning American theatre director, Jay Sheib. Opening at the West End venue in June 2017, the musical plays for a strictly limited season - so do not miss out!
