AWESOME SHOW!

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

BOOH

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.

BAT OUT OF HELL

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!

SADLY DISAPPOINTED

I guess I am one of the few who wasn't impressed with Bat Out of Hell. The cast had incredible singing voices, the special effects were really good, and that was it. The story line was a bit familiar... very Peter Pan, and, sadly, a bit boring. If the play didn't provide that little newspaper on every seat, and the story out line projected on the stage before the play started, nobody would have known what was going on. I couldn't get into the characters, and I felt that some scenes were random just so that they could use a particular song, (Two Out Of Three Aint Bad). I feel that the story could have been more intriguing, and the characters more endearing. I have been going to plays for over 30 years, and most grab you from the beginning and take you along for the ride. Bat Out Of Hell just didn't do that for me. I wish it had. I wasn't wow'd. Disappointing. I don't recommend Bat Out Of Hell, unless you are a die hard Meatloaf fan. Pretend it's a concert. Singing was amazing.

THE NEW CAST IS VERY DISAPPOINTING

I saw the original version 6 times and would see it 100 more if I could. Sadly the new north American tour cast is terrible with no chemistry. Sloan is now whiny and Falco looks like a mob boss and they seem like strangers with no history which is not what they are meant to be. These 2 characters were my favourite but not in this production. The new Raven is portrayed as jeuvenile and so weird and her twist on many classic songs made it unenjoyable. She is very very talented, don't get me wrong but not the right fit for raven. That said, if you haven't seen Andrew Polec play Strat then you haven't lived! He is worth every penny of ticket price. I'm not surprised it was cancelled. It should never have returned to Toronto where the people LOVED the UK actors and the original big splashy set. This was a total letdown to a huge fan.

SADLY IT WASN’T THE SAME

Saw this in 2017,was excited it’sback.While it’s an ok production,it wasn’t close to the theatrical performance it was last year.The new Raven needs to feel more comfortable in this role &to develop more chemistry with Strat.The new actors playing the parents didn’t have as much chemistry &really didn’t pull at our heart strings as much in“What part of my body hurts the most”.We didn’t see the tear-jerking,love story between them.They all can sing well &they all bring a different flavour to this production.Of course if you never saw it before,it was still decent but if you heard how great it was in2017,you might be very let down.As for the set,the motorbike wasn’t in mid stage,the car never fell off stage,there wasn’t a pool of water on stage,the motorbike never broke into pieces &floated;the time line of days/weeks/hours wasn’t needed,Moms solo dialogue wasn’t needed as It gave an odd vibe.Andrew P. still brings his electricity & it’s worth it to see him,but this cast needs improvements

BAT OUT OF HELL

Very good production last evening! They have made some changes,such as the story line,seemed pared down,not as good. in my opinion. The solo by the main girl was cut, and there didnt seem to be as many songs off the album this time. Some of the special effects,such as the car going into the pit, the man jumping into the water and the motor cycle blowing into pieces and flying into the air had been changed, not as good IMO. Though the show was very good,I personnally preferred the opening night performance last year. The performers were very good, high energy show. I would reccomend this as a must see while in Toronto. Bravo!

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.
