Hitting the highway until late 2022, after several staggering runs in Toronto, New York and London, Bat Out Of Hell returned to its proverbial Manchester home this weekend.
It’s not just one of us who was pleased to have Mamma Mia! back on the Edinburgh Playhouse stage – an air of expectation and excitement filled the entire auditorium for the show.
Since the closing of Bat Out of Hell, fans of the show have been able to keep their love and involvement alive through Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton’s album Vision of You which charts the backstory of their characters Falco and Sloane.
After releasing their album Vision of You, back in December, Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton have taken their exploration of the backstories of Falco and Sloane (the pair’s characters in Bat Out of Hell) to new levels with a series of concerts about how the duo came to be.
Stars of Bat Out of Hell the musical Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton are currently in the process of recording their debut duets album, Vision of You.
The West End season of the award-winning Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will end at the Dominion Theatre on Saturday 5 January 2019.
It’s a different way to experience a West End musical and I’m not too sure that many others would suit the singalong treatment in a similar manner, so why not give your vocal cords a treat.
This week I visited the newly renamed Jim Steinman suite at the Dominion Theatre, to catch up with Rob Fowler who plays Falco in Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical.
Newly installed at the Dominion Theatre, after runs in Manchester, Toronto and at the Coliseum last year, Bat Out of Hell has lost little of the bizarre, baffling energy that saw it find a very devoted audience.
In a remarkably quick return after its Coliseum outing, Jim Steinman’s barmy musical is storming onto the Tottenham Court Road, rocking on.
High octane musical Bat Out of Hell deserves its five stars simply for the high quality of the musical numbers and their performance. Polec, Bennington, Fowler and Sexton are simply stupendous.
Ahead of the official opening night of Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical at the Dominion Theatre on 19 April 2018, and due to overwhelming demand for tickets, the producers have announced a new booking period from 30 July to 27 October 2018.
With the show’s leads, Andrew Polec and Christina Bennington, previously announced, the full company has now been cast for the 2018 West End run of Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical.
Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell has just landed in the West End and with no intention of being a quiet neighbour in theatreland either. From the onset the audience are confronted with an immense overture of the loud rock delights that feature in this epic production.
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.
Let’s make one thing clear: this show is epically crazy. Jim Steinman’s rock musical is like nothing else currently on any West End stage. It feels like a rollercoaster ride where things are constantly being thrown at you from every direction: the great, the good, the bad and the ugly sides of rock music are all thrown together to create a show like no other.
