Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will close at London’s Dominion Theatre in January 2019.
Loosely based on Peter Pan, Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is a romantic adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love, set against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city.
The dystopian rock musical began previews on 2 April 2018 and will have played for 10 months when it completes its final performance on 5 January 2019 at the Dominion Theatre. The show previously ran at the Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum and Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre in 2017.
It was recently announced the Bat’s originating lead actor Andrew Polec would join the North American tour which opens in Toronto, Canada later this month. A German language production will also open in Oberhasuen, Germany on 2 November 2018.
The show incorporates songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums, including You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs, What Part of My Body Hurts the Most and Not Allowed to Love.
The West End cast is led by Jordan Luke Gage as Strat and Christina Bennington as Raven, with Rob Fowler as Falco and Sharon Sexton as Sloane.
Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is booking until 5 January 2019 at the Dominion Theatre, London
