Would you offer your throat to the wolf?

Winner of Best Musical at London's Evening Standard Awards 2017
Nominated for Best New Musical, Best Direction AND Best Set Design at the West End's What's On Stage Awards 2018

Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman's epic 1977 collaboration roars on to the stage in this impressive new musical that has already wowed the crowds in Toronto and on London's West End. Using their unforgettable tunes including titular 'Bat Out of Hell', 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light', 'Heaven Can Wait' and many, many more to score a rocking story of good guys vs bad guys this long-awaited monumental new production will rev you harder than a Harley Davison and have you bopping in your seat from the crashing first bars.

What's the story?

Welcome to a dystopian Manhattan presided over by the villainous Falco. At the bottom of his shimmering tower live a group called The Lost, a bunch of rock and roll rebels who stopped ageing at 18. In a whirlwind of shining chrome, spray-on jeans and Doc Martens, their leader Strat falls for his enemy's daughter, the innocent Raven, begining a fantastic romance that sizzles and blooms as The Lost fight Falco for the right to survive.

So if you're looking for paradise by the theatre lights, you can't go wrong with this high-octane thrill ride!
