The Dominion Theatre is the venue for a show that's set to rock your world. If you love Meat Loaf's unique musical style in all its humorous, loud and proud glory, you'll never forget this particularly big night out. Bat Out of Hell features more than twenty massive songs from the Loaf, set to a plot that'll have your heart racing ten to the dozen. Huge fun, eagerly anticipated, don't miss it!

Bat Out Of Hell is inspired by the albums of the same name, with tunes by the brilliant songwriter Jim Steinman and Jay Scheib at the helm. It's no surprise it has made it to the stage, joining a host of music industry stars whose songs have been immortalised in top class musicals.

In a way it's surprising it took so long for Steinman and Meatloafs' extraordinary rock opera to make it to the stage. It's been on Steinman's mind for some time, by all accounts, so it's fantastic to finally see it on the way to the West End.

Bat Out of Hell – The story

Expect twenty or more classics from the Loaf, woven into a story you'll revel in. Are you ready to rock? The story goes like this: young Strat is stuck in a post-apocalyptic world and he'd do anything for love. Being madly passionate about the mad dictator Falco's daughter is a risky business – will romance win the day?

The musical knits together classic tunes from all three Bat Out of Hell albums, a plot that does full justice to the music's power, drama and massive electric charge.

Expect plenty of singing and dancing to spice up the action, and plenty of humour too – a staple of the personality behind the music. By all account Meat Loaf is a very funny man, and while the fine details of this hit-in-the-making of a musical are yet to be revealed, the signs are looking good. Very good.

Best of all, the word on the streets is there'll be a few brand new Steinman songs to add to the classics we all know and love. If your idea of a great night out includes top music plus themes of love and loss, you've got it. There might even be the occasional motorbike on stage. You'll have to wait and see!

One word ‘Amazing’

London Box Office customer

Go see it!

London Box Office customer

A show never to be walked on by.

Have seen this show three times, each time i was left in the same place, when can i buy a ticket to see it again? Very sad to see the last performance but know the beat will live forever via You Tube.


London Box Office customer

Energetic

London Box Office customer

Amazing voices and dancing supported by unusual but poweful staging

London Box Office customer

Wow, just Wow!!

The music, singing and band were top class. Lots of surprises, and although we may have got used to these being Meatloaf songs, it didn't matter who sang them, male or female.


London Box Office customer

Amazing Vibrant Show

London Box Office customer

BRILLIANT

If you like Meatloaf and Jim Steinman you'll love it. But even if not I think you could be fan by the end of the show. Just a shame it ends today. Let's hope they bring it back with the same lead cast.


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Best ever

I was very impressed! Best musical I’ve seen, everyone’s singing was incredible, never heard anything so amazing 😀


London Box Office customer

This was our second time to see Bat out of Hell and it was just as good second time round we took our Friends who were pleasantly suprised with the quality of the production well done to everyone concerned.


London Box Office customer

Awesome

Great show, just nailed it. Cast were brilliant and Meat would be proud


London Box Office customer

Wasn’t sure about the story

Really enjoyed this show..strong voices and great young talent. Effects were fabulous although a bit too much to follow at times. Highly recommended


London Box Office customer

A show with a difference

The show was excellent as it held you in suspense as to what would happen. We had a seat in the front stalls which we thought was a very good seat as you felt part of the show. I did not feel that this show would be a good idea for young children.


London Box Office customer

Not what you expect!!!

Sit in middle seating very obstructing on wing


London Box Office customer

If you like rock music, it’s a must see!

London Box Office customer

Fantastic show for fans of Meatloaf

London Box Office customer

Gripping

London Box Office customer

AWESOME SHOW

One of the best musicals ever. You left the theatre on a real high. Would definitely go and see it again


London Box Office customer

Energetic and Fun

Great show kept me entertained from start to finish, great vocalists. I would highly recommend seeing it before it ends.


London Box Office customer

Deservedly rated London's best theatrical production

I attended the Bat Out of Hell show on December 19th 2018 with my wife, having already seen the production with my daughter in August. I simply HAD to bring my wife up from Brighton to see the show and could barely wait for her to see it over those four months. Fantastic vocal performances by all principle characters, great stage production, wonderful musical direction and so very moving that we were both reduced to tears during and even after the show. I cannot recommend this show highly enough and thank Jim Steinman for the incredible music which inspired it.


London Box Office customer

Fantasic !

London Box Office customer

The lighting and sounds effect were amazing, created an amazing effect. The whole show in general is really worth the watch! Amazing!

London Box Office customer

Disappointing

Disappointing. Poor story line and acting. Rather bored and left at the interval


London Box Office customer

Oh my God it was dreadful

there's no story! the cast can sing and all seem to be trying their hardest, but the music is terrible, story-line is non-existent and the acting awful. We left at the interval.


London Box Office customer

Loud, rock and roll, rebellion, pure energy

Wow, the singing and the music was incredible - the live orchestra amazing. Although the story is a little cheesy I think quite a clever weaving together of the Meat Loaf songs where they all make sense within the storyline: clever writing. The singing was incredible. How these performers so this every night or even more is just crazy. Go see it before it goes off. Such a shame it is finishing. Maybe it was put into a theatre that was too big. It is a great theatre and I hope it gets put on to a smaller one somewhere else or what a waste!


London Box Office customer

The old Meatloaf songs are good. The story line I was not sure about, stage and set were very good.


London Box Office customer

Great songs

London Box Office customer

One of the best

Great music, excellent singers, band, just amazing


London Box Office customer

Amazing show!!

I love it so much. Been 5 times. Devastated it's closing. Don't know what i will do now!!!!


London Box Office customer

Best musical production ever

The production, the set, the music were fantastic. If you have the chance make time to see this, you won’t be disappointed


London Box Office customer

Rock n roll perfection!

Amazing music, amazing singing & dancing - a must see for anyone who loves Meatloaf


London Box Office customer

Not to be missed.

Absolutely fantastic, the songs brought to life in a new way , goose bumps throughout.


London Box Office customer

Not to be missed!

I simply love this show. On seven occasions I have been privileged to see this wonderful cast, listen to the outstanding musicians and watch the unbelievable production. On each of those seven visits I have been in awe at the commitment that the personnel involved show in entertaining those lucky enough to be present. I have tickets for the final show on the 5th January, but I may try and fit one more in before that exciting but sad occasion. BOOH has spoiled me from viewing musical theatre from this point onwards. All future shows I see have a lot to live up to. This production has set the bar very high. Thank you to all those involved. ,


London Box Office customer

Special effects spectacular

Special effects were spectacular, music and songs were fantastic. Highly recommend!!


London Box Office customer

Weird and wonderful

London Box Office customer

Loads of energy. Incredible and very clever staging - very atmospheric. Great singing (although don’t expect it to sound like MeatLoaf). Not much of a story but it really didn’t matter.


London Box Office customer

Ab fab

Was brilliant


London Box Office customer

A must see show amazing !

The show was amazing cant say enough about spectacular lighting & effects , the cast are brilliant actors with amazing voices , my second time seeing it !


London Box Office customer

An attack on your emotions! Fanbloodytastic!!!!

London Box Office customer

The best musical score ever to hit the West End stage.

Astonishingly beautiful. End to end incredible music. Seen it 3 times and the cast continue to give it 110% every time. Catch it while you can.


London Box Office customer

Underwhelming

Please don’t expect to enjoy the show, don’t sing along or move or even look as if you might smile. The show is only for people who don’t have any personality.


London Box Office customer

A classical music experience

London Box Office customer

Brilliant!

Was brilliant!


London Box Office customer

Not what you might expect.

Fistly, a fantastic evenings entertainment. Not what you might expect as the performance is loosely based on Peter and Wendy / Lost Boys, it incorporates the music of Meat Loaf. Dual cameras included in the performance adds to the visuals, and the 3D, (although sparse) is excellent. Seats L2/L3 Stalls, advertised as non restricted view, was in fact restricted to anything on the far right of stage.


London Box Office customer

Rocking good show

Tremendous original set and a very young energetic and talented caste.


London Box Office customer

Amazing!!!

Go see it before it ends! Stunning production that blew me away with the performances and vocals


London Box Office customer

Super show

Feel good show. Really enthusiastic cast. Loved it. Lovely theatre but it was very cool at the start as the air con was on.


London Box Office customer

Full Throttle

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Best musical ever

Really great show best ever.


London Box Office customer

Great show shame its ending

Brilliant show love it. A must see for Bat fans.


London Box Office customer

Upbeat show

Seen three tunes now, upbeat show leaving you with a great feeling when you leave. Seen once with main cast members and twice with understudies, loved the main characters and would have liked to see them again but certainly did not spoil anything with the understudies.


London Box Office customer

Energy

Dancing, singing, music and acting was amazing Story line was a little confusing Lightning and stage settings were excellent


London Box Office customer

excellent

have seen this show for three years running at least twice a year & each time there are slight differences so makes it fresh each time. cast are so believable & music & stage changes are really good. there are a few flashing light times.


London Box Office customer

Spectacular show

What a brilliant all round show but I would stress there are sexual connotations so not suitable for young children. The special effects were out of this world a must see


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

London Box Office customer

Interesting

Unfortunately our experience was spoilt by a number of drunks sitting two rows in front of us.


London Box Office customer

If you like meat loaf then this is the show for you

It takes time to understand the story but stick with it


London Box Office customer

Excellent all round show

Watched Bat Out Of Hell today and was totally impressed would advise to see this before it closes maybe not for young children because of adult themes but one of the best shows I’ve seen totally excellent


London Box Office customer

Great entertainment

Came with open mind! Enjoyed every moment!!


London Box Office customer

Bat at its best

London Box Office customer

Great music

London Box Office customer

Explosive, dynamic and brilliant

London Box Office customer

Entertaining

London Box Office customer

Heavenly, Hell of a show.

I was told there would be newspaper on the seat explaining the back story but there weren’t any. Having said that we soon picked up the plot although the music was the most important item.


London Box Office customer

Wonderful

Seen this twice, second time was a singalong and what a great party there was with a wonderful atmosphere and everyone joining in with the classics. The show is brilliantly staged, sound is fantastic and all the performances excellent. If you are a Steinman fan don't miss this treat.


London Box Office customer

Must see before it ends

For me this is 'west side story' set in 2025 so should appeal to anyone who enjoys brilliant singing, excellent acting and an exceptional storyline. Do not be put off if there are 'understudy or stand ins' everyone in this troupe gives heart and soul to the performance, being a newbie I have only seen it 20 times from the early days in Manchester through the Colosseum to the Dominion. Don't prevaricate - book those tickets now before the show ends and enjoy.


London Box Office customer

Best show we’ve ever seen.

The whole cast in this production have the most powerful voices I have ever heard. Each time I see this show I like it more and more.


London Box Office customer

Genious, powerful, and inspiring

London Box Office customer

Fantastic Show

London Box Office customer

Such fun!

London Box Office customer

Amazing, surprises, sing-along

Amazing show. Great view in all seats due to the stage setup.


London Box Office customer

See it if you like Meatloaf music!

London Box Office customer

A must see!

Everything I want from a play is Bat Out of Hell. Awesome music, dancing, acting and special effects!


London Box Office customer

Must see if you like rock musicals

100% must-see for Meatloaf/Jim Steinman fans. The songs are great anyway, but are really brought to life in the musical. Stunning.


London Box Office customer

Spectacular


London Box Office customer

I wouldn’t recommend it for under16’s because if the sexual contents.


London Box Office customer

Energetic lively performance

An amazing production with an energetic lively cast. Back for a second time! Sitting close to the stage gave a different perspective and appreciation of the back ground action and dancing. Some amazing special effects and very interesting use of the stage, being multi level. Took older teens who loved the show.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant exciting show

This show is wonderful for anyone who loves the Meatloaf soundtrack. It is also a love story which has been cleverly written to incorporate all the well known tracks from the Bat out of Hell compilation. Amusing aswell and aimed at an adult audience.


London Box Office customer

Worth going to see

Really enjoyed show. Music was good by the orchestra and the singing was good too. Story line very simple basic. But show was mostly about the music so does not matter. We really enjoyed it and would recommend people seeing it. Does contain strobe lighting so they should warn people in case anyone has epilepsy for example.


London Box Office customer

Must see - incredible music

London Box Office customer

Fantastic Show

I did not have any expectations which was good as it blew me away! Cant help but sing along to the songs and had great energy and vibe! Generally really fun exciting show with quite a lot of comedy aspects too which was great!
