The Bat Out Of Hell UK Tour returns in 2020. The award-winning musical will open at the Manchester Opera House ahead of a UK tour.
Bat Out Of Hell, the award-winning musical by Jim Steinman, based on the best-selling classic album by Meat Loaf returns to the Manchester Opera House on 10 September 2020 prior to a UK Tour.
Composer, Jim Steinman has been developing the new musical for years based on the trilogy of albums: – Bat Out Of Hell, Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell and Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose. The original album sold over 50 million copies worldwide and included the hits You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad and Paradise By The Dashboard Light. The musical will use hits from all three albums including I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) from Bat Out Of Hell II.
Bat Out Of Hell will mark Steinman’s return to the London musical stage following his collaboration with Andrew Lloyd Webber on Whistle Down The Wind, for which he provided the lyrics. He produced and wrote the lyrics for the Boyzone hit No Matter What which was taken from the show. Steinman also wrote the musical for the hit European musicals Dance Of The Vampires.
Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is described as a “romantic adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city. Following Strat, who has fallen in love with the daughter of the despotic Falco, this new musical is a high-octane rock‘n’roll adventure that tears through over 20 of Steinman songs.”
The UK tour of Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical has book, music and lyrics by Jim Steinman, direction by Jay Scheib, with musical supervision and additional arrangements by Michael Reed, set and costume design by Jon Bausor, original costume designs by Meentje Nielsen, video design by Finn Ross, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, sound design by Gareth Owen, orchestration by Steve Sidwell and casting by Anne Vosser.
