Why See Bat Out of Hell The Musical?
...GLOWING LIKE THE METAL ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE
Prepare yourselves for the returns of this epic rock opera, returning to Toronto this fall! A high-energy adaptation of Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf's amazing trilogy of records of the same name, it has already enjoyed two successful runs on London's West End and is gearing up for a North American tour during the 2018/19 season.
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 Bat Out of Hell 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.
