    ‘Bat out of Hell’ is a definite must for Meat Loaf fans. At 3 hours long, it’s a bit of a marathon on his songs and they are sung with plenty of gusto, passion and exuberance. For me however, the stand out aspect of this show was the incredible set design and it’s probably worth seeing for that alone. I have to say the acting felt rather flat and there were some ridiculous cheesy clichés throughout. It was also very thin on a plotline, however the classing rock power ballads more then made up for it. The majority of the audience were obviously Meat Loaf fans who felt they were at a Meat Loaf gig by singing and clapping to songs. There were a lot of empty seats up in the balcony but it is still in preview so hopefully those seats will start to fill once the reviews come out.
    This seat is very high up in the Coliseum and is the third row in the balcony. I wouldn’t recommend it if you suffer from vertigo. The seat is centrally located so you have a good overall view of the stage, however when any action occurs at the front of the stage you can’ t see any action. There is also a safety rail which blocks some of your view and so people in rows A and B tend to lean forward, meaning you have to lean forward to so it’s not the greatest seat. The seat is however fairly comfortable with OK leg room.

    Storyline a tad weak (boy chases girl, wins girl, loses girl, gets girl back type love story), and was a bit slow to get going. However the vocals, staging, music, songs and performances of all in show were outstanding. If you like Meatloaf/Jim Steinman, you will thoroughly enjoy. Nice comedy touches throughout show. Some exceptionally well sung songs.
    Good clear view of whole stage. Good rake, so person in row in front did not obstruct. Seats nice and comfortable - show was 3 hours (inc interval), but no 'numb bum' from seat. Hottest day of year, but air conditioned, so nice and cool. Despite being hottest day of year, theatre not allowing bottled water to be brought in, instead directed you their own sales!

    Show was fun with brilliant acting and singing especially as I do enjoy meat loaf songs. Set was amazing.
    Sat in Balcony A8
    The balcony is very high up but I actually had quite a good view of the whole stage apart from the right side edge of the stage but as this is a front row seat you can lean on the ledge which then gives you a perfect view which I don't think would effect the row behind this seats view. There is a rail in front of you which I found does not effect the view. Leg room is limited but I am only 5'2 and was plenty enough for me. Seat itself is quite narrow so was a bit uncomfortable but staying that it was bearable especially for the price of the ticket which I found to be a bargain. Would sit here again.

    Who this is a great show and takes you back to the classic Meat Loaf album. Great staging to and the story line is fab along with the brilliant music. Highly recommended and a must see.
    Leg room was s tight in these seats and I'm only 5'10 however this is overlooked by the fantastic view you have of the whole stage.

BAT OUT OF HELL - THE MUSICAL SEATING PLAN
The Stalls at the London Coliseum tend to give good views of the huge stage. The front rows can leave you looking up a lot, however can offer good prices. The very back of the stalls can also be affected by the overhang from the Circle.

The Dress Circle also gives good views of the stage, however there is a deep curve, meaning ends of the rows can be give a very sideways view of the stage. The rear rows similarly suffer from a overhang from bottom of the Upper Circle. The Upper Circle itself has a similar layout, although does begin to feel a bit distant. The Balcony increases this feeling and tends to give very downwards sight lines, however can offer some of the cheapest seats in the house.

STORY
Meat Loaf’s classic rock album Bat Out Of Hell arrives on the London stage in 2017, as a new version directed by the award-winning Jay Scheib is set to open at the London Coliseum in summer 2017, with tickets expected to go on sale in autumn 2016. Exact details are still to be confirmed.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical follows the main character Strat, who has fallen madly in love with the daughter of the tyrannical Falco. It is a romantic adventure about youth, rebellion and passionate love, all set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic city.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is a rock’n’roll adventure that is pumped full of energy, tearing through over 20 classic songs by Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman. The musical includes such hit songs as ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me Now’, ‘I’d Do Anything for Love… (But I Won’t Do That)’, ‘You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)’, ‘Bat Out Of Hell’, ‘Dead Ringer For Love’ and ‘Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad’.

Bat Out Of Hell originally started its life as a futuristic rock musical called Neverland which was loosely based on Peter Pan and was written by Jim Steinman for a workshop in 1974 and first performed at the Kennedy Center Music Theatre Lab three years later. When Meat Loaf heard the songs, he thought they were ‘exceptional’ and this led them being recorded as his next album.

The album was first released in 1977 but was not initially a hit. Despite this, its popularity slowly grew over time and became one of the bestselling records in the world, staying on the United Kingdom album charts for a huge 485 weeks and has sold a total of 43 million copies worldwide. It has taken years of development by composer Jim Steinman to finally bring it back to the stage.

This brand new musical is directed by the Obie award-winning American director Jay Scheib. Scheib’s previous work includes Addicted to Bad Ideas, A House in Bali and Bellona, Destroyer of Cities. He is known for his work across live-cinema, opera, music and non-theatrical events.

Jim Steinman is a regular of musical theatre, having collaborated with fellow composer Andrew Lloyd Webber for the musical Whistle Down the Wind, which he wrote the lyrics for. The show opened in America, before coming to the West End’s Aldwych Theatre in 1998. This included the song ‘No Matter What’, which became a hugely popular hit for Boyzone.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is expected to open at the London Coliseum in summer 2017, with tickets scheduled to go on sale in autumn 2016.
SUITABLE FOR
Fans of the classic Meat Loaf album should not miss the chance to see it transformed in this new stage version, taking it back to its dystopian rock musical roots that was originally created by Jim Steinman in the 1970s.
