Out of five starts, this show deserves at least a seven. Everything about it is fantastic. The music, of course - Jim Steinman is a legend of a songwriter. The singing - every single member of the cast is better than Meat Loaf. Especially look out for Danielle Steers as the minor character Zahara. When she sings "Baby we can talk all night", everyone in the audience's jaw drops to the floor. Objects In The Rear View Mirror made me tear up despite my life being relatively happy and not personally being able to relate to the words. Bat Out Of Hell the song is incredible, and the special effects help it along. And Paradise By the Dashboard Light is hilarious. There is a lot that's hilarious in this show, and it knows it! It revels in its ridiculousness and excess. The set, I want to mention, is really amazing, and contains little secrets that stun you because you didn't know they were there. Only criticism - the tickets and merch are a bit expensive. Oh! I want to go again. And again!

Don't blame me for the review title, BooH was on the backs of the folks working at the theatre. It took a couple of songs for me. Bat 1 is my favourite album (yes, I had it on cassette, vinyl and still on CD.), Me and Bat have been together longer than me and my wife (we met in '79). While everyone was pretty darned amazing, the four of us who went together were utterly stunned by the performances and voices of Danielle Steers as Zahara, Rob Fowler as Falco, Sharon Sexton as Sloane, We saw the show Saturday 21 Oct. at Mirvish Theatre. I was unsure for the first song sounded like the music was too loud and drowned the voices a bit. Also hearing multiple people singing was a bit weird. But he cast soon pulled me into the story and I was caught! Like the music? See the show.

Outstanding performance- very emotional at times. Would consider a high school trip to teach about relationships. So glad to have lived in the time of Meatloaf Would go again in a heartbeat!

Speaking from someone who was never around during the time when Meatloaf had released his 'Bat Out of Hell' album, thanks to my dad, I have grown to love it today. I loved it so much so that when we heard that Bat Out of Hell was being made into a musical and it was coming to Toronto, we just knew we had to go. It did not disappoint! From the very first song to the last, you couldn't help but tap your feet! All the actors were exceptional, and had such strong and fantastic voices, perfect for the kind of songs Meatloaf would sing. The setting of the stage, really gives you a creative visual of a dystopian future, and the story itself will take you on an adventure you will never forget. On top of that, it was nice to see people who were big fans of Meatloaf and Jim Steinman back in the day, with big smiles on their faces, as they saw one of their favourite albums being brought to life. I would highly recommend it to anyone who was debating on seeing it. You will not be sorry.

Seriously the best musical ever. The talent of the actors blew us away, the music is iconic and the way the stage and show was set to the music was absolutely amazing. We loved it! So happy that Ed Mirvish brought this musical to Toronto - a must see! Out of town traveller - take advantage of the accommodation discount when seeing the show, at the Sheraton Centre - amazing hotel, excellent service - we celebrated our anniversary in a wonderful, memorable way. Thank you.

Purposely made a stop over in Toronto on my flight home to catch this show. The hustle from the airport by UP train and subway and back was worth it! The Mirvish kindly checked my suitcase at the coatcheck. Loved every minute! I was 3rd row (EE) and on the stage right side. I noted most of the action was on stage right. Best enjoyed by people who love the album Bat Out of Hell

This is one of the best stage shows I have ever seen and I have seen many! The entire show was spellbinding, the effects, dancers, singers, sets, music...The venue is great as were our close Orchestra seats...I can't say enough.I laughed, cried, sang, all of it! A 20 out of 10 rating! I hope to see it again-a cult classic for sure!! This is a great show for teens straight through to seniors. A good bet for a close, reasonably priced restaurant would be Fran's a block away.

What we thought

INSANE Operatic epic

Bat Out of Hell revs you harder than a Harley Davidson.

A high-octane thrill ride, this epic stage adaptation of the already fairly epic album(s) is utterly irresistible.
