INSIDE | Bat Out Of Hell Returns to the West End with a BANG!

Jim Steinman’s award-winning musical Bat Out Of Hell returns to London this April, ready to rock the roof off of the Dominion Theatre.

With an epic return, they kicked off the start of their West End run with a powerful concert that showcased the stellar vocals of this tremendously talented cast. With a cast created of both old and original cast members, the extraordinary Andrew Polec and Christina Bennington opened the live show with the iconic Bat Out Of Hell.

 

 

I fell in love with the show because of how bold and daring the production is. Breaking all boundaries, the production values are out of this world, which is matched by the remarkable talent of the cast. It’s a fresh and unique musical that puts a new stamp on musical theatre.

It’s a story of 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.
