...GLOWING LIKE THE METAL ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE
Prepare yourselves Toronto because this is big! After an award-winning run on London's West End, this brand new adaptation of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf's epic rock opera trilogy is knocking the socks of rock and roll fans in its North American Premiere.
Steinman's iconic bops have been dusted off by the man himself, forming an anthemic and euphoric score to a brand new tale of lovestruck young rockers living in a dystopian nightmare, wheeling ever closer to an explosive rebellion. With 17 classic bops, including 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light', 'Heaven Can Wait' and more, you won't have to wait too long dust off your leather jackets and rockabilly denim and prepare to rock, hard!
The first part of this epic trilogy was released in 1977, with the second and third following in 1993 and 2006 respectively. Inspired by musicians as diverse as Wagner and Bruce Springsteen, it was a hit immediately on both sides of the Atlantic. Always intended to be a large scale work, this long overdue staging has both fans of theatre and rock and roll ready to do anything for tickets.
HE'D DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE...
Following the fortunes of Strat, a young man stuck in a post-apocalyptic city and his passionate romance with the beautiful daughter of Falco, the mad dictator in charge. Weaving together songs from both Bat Out of Hell I, II and III, this is a must see for fans of Stienman's highly charged songwriting that overflows with drama and theatrics.
