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!

A ROCK CONCERT MEETS THEATER: MATCH MADE IN HELL.
Hope you get the sarcastic pun of my review title LOL.
If you are thinking this show might be a story of suttle laid back
elegance with a neat tidy story line than it may not be for you.
That is soooo not what this show is about If your seeking a
CRAZY, ROCKING great awesome wild concert like show with
explosive force than you will LOVE IT! For me always being one
who loves rock concerts, this for me is the best theater
production I have ever seen. It combines everything I love.
Classic rock, lots of great forcefull thunder, great acting & great
special effects. Love when the car goes into the pit. Love when
things that get smashed just float in the air. The singers were so
awesome. I wish the show was running longer as I just saw it on
Nov 27. If it ran longer, I would see see it again in 2018.
So I would tell everyone, GO SEE IT!!! I give it a 10!!! Bravo to all
the actors & actresses! This show is a MUST SEE!!!!

It was absolutely amazing

BAT OUT OF HELL
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.

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.

BAT OUT OF HELL.......AMZING! POWERFUL! UNREAL!
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.
Michael from Toronto, Ontario
10 OUT OF 10 ! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!
Not just for fans of Meatloaf, this dark and yet surprisingly comedic musical will hold
your attention from start till finish. While the story being told was a bit awkward at
times, the stellar performances by the entire cast more than made up for it. The only
negative is that this being my first musical, I am now probably hooked, lol..so just go see
this ; you wont be disappointed.
Karen from Winnipeg MB
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
Christopher Shand from niagara Falls, Ontario
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!
Darlene Freeman from Toronto, Ontario
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
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

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

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!
Andrea livingston from Toronto, Ontario
NOT AS PUMPED AS I EXPECTED
Some areas very mello...
Very very slow .. yawn
I was coming for the rock of the album I got that ..but it was very select..and few
I get where the scenes were but everything was very dark
Not near as exciting as I expected
Far too loud it drowned out the singer's the crazy heavy base
