Wednesday 31 May 2017
Musicals - New shows
Directed by Jay Scheib, this high octane musical adventure has just extended its limited season, now playing at the London Coliseum from 5 June to 5 August 2017.
Playing a limited season this summer at the London Coliseum, Bat Out of Hell is a breath-taking new musical that features 17 of Meat Loaf's greatest hits including I’d Do Anything for Love, Paradise by the Dashboard Light, You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Dead Ringer For Love, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad, Bat Out of Hell and more.
Join the eternally young Strat and his wild gang, The Lost, as they roam the streets of Obsidian, a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, ruled by the wicked and tyrannical Falco.
When Strat first sets eyes on Falco's daughter, Raven, who has been locked away in the palace towers, he sets out to rescue her from her evil father's clutches in a full throttle tale of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living the rock and roll dream.
And for fact-lovers here are some about the show ...
BAT OUT OF HELL is one of the five best-selling albums of all time and was originally written as a musical by Jim Steinman 50 years ago!
The BAT OUT OF HELL creative team have between them 2 Grammy awards, 4 Olivier awards and 3 Olivier nominations, 2 Tony awards and 3 Tony nominations, 1 Emmy nomination, 2 Drama Desk awards, 15 other prestigious arts awards and an OBE!
Jim Steinman, the man behind the music, lyrics and book for the show, has been described by the LA Times as ‘the Richard Wagner of rock’, and has written and produced records that have sold more than 190 million copies worldwide.
Jon Bausor, responsible for designing the opening ceremony of the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, has masterminded a set that will be one of the biggest in London’s West End.
The orchestrator, Steve Sidwell, had to listen to every single song in the show and write out each and every note.
There are over 1,000 pages of music in the show.
The show's choreographer, 22 year old Emma Portner, has worked with Justin Bieber on his Life is Worth Living music video and Purpose World Tour.
