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!

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

London Box Office customer

Full Throttle

London Box Office customer

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!


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

Loved this show . Great effects and great acting and singers .


London Box Office customer

I’m not a theatre lover but Took my wife as a birthday present and absolutely loved it. He show was played out well with some good effects.


London Box Office customer

Amazing Really Enjoyed It!!!

If you like Meatloaf music then you'll love this show!! great from start to finish.


London Box Office customer

Super, maybe the best I've seen / heard

Well Steinman's / Meatloaf's music is perfectly suited to a musical and first time I saw it in April I was totally awestruck and in an emotional state. Saw it on Saturday for the 2nd time and the effect was the same. Of course the music leaves little do be desired but in general the singing and dance routines were tooop notch. Maybe the singer for the role was Strat was better in April IMHO. The standout performer for me and my GF was Rob Fowler as Falco. But as a final comment I have to say that the screenplay was really good in how it encorporated Meat's songs into a coherent story - as opposed to the We Will Rock You musical, which did not do the same (and I'm a huge Queen fan as well).


London Box Office customer

Great show

London Box Office customer

Baffling

Wasn’t impressed with the story . Music was good . But sorry it was not for me . One young lady stood out would make a good Tina Turner


London Box Office customer

Amazing musical brought to life

London Box Office customer

Great music with some great comedy moments

London Box Office customer

Incredible

Absolutely incredible , a must see. Spectacular from beginning to end.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely loved it!

If you like Rock, then this show is what you seek. Loud, guitars, and outstanding singers. It’not evident for musicalsingers to sing Rock, but boy they nailed it! Just make sure that your seat is more in the middle or on the rightside. There is a projection on a screen on the left, and we could only see a part of it. But that was the only minus!


London Box Office customer

Unpretentious fun

Loose script stringing an assortment of great classics passionately performed. There are good comic moments and the cast don't take themselves or the material too seriously. Jim Steinmans music always suited the theatre and lovers of Meatloaf will not be disappointed by the band or the singers. Just a good fun night out,


London Box Office customer

Amazing singing and dancing. Storyline is difficult to follow.

London Box Office customer

A definiate must see

The singing and acting was amazing


London Box Office customer

Great show but poor plot

London Box Office customer

LIVELY

WEIRD weak STORYLINE but the music made up for it. Lovely singers too.


London Box Office customer

BIzarre but WOW!

This is how Steinman's and Meat's songs were meant to be heard - loud and in your face. The story won't win awards but the music is superb, the lyrics brilliant, special effects unexpected (watch for the slo-mo exploding bike) and great. The only down side was the Ushers telling us to stop clapping along or joining in singing (and there are numerous signs on walls/every bar saying the same). If we want to an enjoy a non-serious musical let us, it's not a posh theatre serious play! Go see this before it leaves London in Jan 2019.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

Acting was fabulous. What an amazing performance. A real feel good factor.


London Box Office customer

Rocking Out Rock "n Roll!

Great show, better than expected. A few singers stand out but the show is a stand out and would recommend it for anyone that likes rock 'n roll.


London Box Office customer

Walked out

Terrible......worst thing I have ever seen in London.......apart from once seeing a cat run over


London Box Office customer

feel good show

Was all good


London Box Office customer

Colourful

Worth watching


London Box Office customer

Wow

Fantastic show, great story, great music, superb singing and acting. Scenery very well done. Overall an exhilarating show


London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

Great Music and dance! 😎 👍🏻


London Box Office customer

Great show, will see again

Had a fantastic evening. Great musical full of power ballads that I haven’t heard in years, but all of the lyrics came straight back to me. Singing was powerful and very clear. Amazing use of the set with some very innovative staging.


London Box Office customer

Batty show

Some good recognisable music, some never heard off, story line was boring


London Box Office customer

Outstanding vocals!

London Box Office customer

Loud and thrilling!

London Box Office customer

Outrageously fabulous

The stage design and prop work was exceptional, one of the best I’ve seen in years of theatre-going. The cast were very strong in all areas, with great passion and chemistry. The vocals were insane and I was very impressed. The storyline was a bit out there to fit in to the music but it didn’t matter and was expected as it still suited the general feel of the show. Such an electric atmosphere. We wanted to return for final night to soak up that atmosphere again but it’s rightfully sold out (major gutted!) but definitely coming to see it again before it closes!


London Box Office customer

Brilliant and entertaining

We loved the show it was a brilliant story to the music and we would go see it again.


London Box Office customer

Excellent show!

Amazing singining


London Box Office customer

An experience for a few.

Nice show if your like rock and roll...wonderful if you like Meatloaf.


London Box Office customer

Not a Show to Miss!

A must see show. If you like the music of Jim Steinman then do not miss this fantastic show. The songs are covered absolutely brilliantly by all the cast. Really Loved this show and would go to see again.


London Box Office customer

Steinman's songs are in a class of their own

London Box Office customer

Amazed

100% better than we were expecting would definitely recommend to everyone a massive thank you to all for giving us a fantastic day out


London Box Office customer

Great show

London Box Office customer

For Meatloaf fans mainly

Great music if you're a Meatloaf fan, and there are some classics in there but the dialogue was weak at best.


London Box Office customer

Incredible voices

A must for Meatloaf fans. The story is only a vehicle for the musical numbers but who cares when they are sung this well. Amazing vocals, set, lighting and production. Haven’t enjoyed a trip to the theatre this much in years. A very talented cast who certainly do the songs justice.


London Box Office customer

Good singers

It's not the life story of meatloaf,but does include all of his songs.


London Box Office customer

Energetic

Great show, but spoilt by poor staff handling of audience incident


London Box Office customer

Great for Meat Loaf fans

Very good and entertaining show, not the best musical I have ever seen but still worth going, especially if you love Meat Loaf's music! Great costumes and show with brilliant effects including fire, water and a car being pushed down into the orchestra! I did have some trouble understanding/following the story but that wasn't much of a problem.


London Box Office customer

SEEN IT TWICE NOW, ONE OF THE BEST

WE HAVE BEEN TO MANY SHOWS IN LONDON AND THIS IS DEFINITLEY ONE OF THE BEST.


London Box Office customer

Truly a MUST SEE

Such a fantastic show. It perfectly expressed meatloafs music through the theatre. The performers were phenomenal and never missed a beat. Loved every moment


London Box Office customer

Really fun show

Took my 18 year old nephew who was visiting London to see this, and we both really enjoyed it. I recommend it for someone who loves rock music and isn't sure whether he would enjoy a musical or not - don't hesitate, you'll love it. As an added keepsake, my nephew bought one of the specially-decorated beer bottles which I thought was a nice touch


London Box Office customer

Fantastic entertainment

Just come along, relax and be entertained by great music


London Box Office customer

Bat out of Hell revived

truly an excellent show with a great singing cast


London Box Office customer

Wonderful rock and roll

London Box Office customer

Absolutely must see!

London Box Office customer

Brash and beautifully performed.

London Box Office customer

Brilliant day out

London Box Office customer

Poor contrived story line. Music good

Disappointing - poor story, cast did their best, but music good
