Based on Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s classic 1977 collaborative album of the same name, Bat Out Of Hell takes place in a dystopian world, following Strat, the leader of the Lost, as he falls madly in love with Raven; the daughter of the tyrannical Falco. A romantic adventure about youth, rebellion and passion, the show is a wild ride set in a post-apocalyptic city that is guaranteed to capture your soul.
A high-octane, rock ‘n’ roll adventure, the stadium musical tears through over 20 classic Meat Loaf hits, including “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”, plus many more.
Originally starting in 1974 as a futuristic workshop musical called Neverland, the show is loosely based on Peter Pan. First performed at the Kennedy Center Music Theatre Lab three years later, Meat Loaf heard the songs and thought they should be recorded as his next album. The record went on to sell a total of 43 million copies worldwide.
Original London casting included Andrew Polec as Strat, Christina Bennington as Raven, Rob Fowler as Falco, Sharon Sexton as Sloane, Aran MacRae as Tink and Danielle Steers as Zahara.
