Updated 13th October: Tickets for Bat Out of Hell at London's Coliseum where it runs from 5th June-22nd July go on presale at 11:00 am on Thursday 13th October.
Jim Steinman's Bat Out Of Hell musical will open in the West End next summer with the show opening at the Manchester Opera House between 17th February- 29th April 2017 before transferring to the London Coliseum from 5th June-22nd July
Jay Scheib will direct the production which is about never growing up. And never getting old. And always being in love! That's rock'n'roll. Steinman said the stage show will primarily be based on the first Bat Out Of Hell album, but may use music from subsequent Bat LPs. There will also be a couple of new songs.
Scheib and Steinman have been busy adapting the book for the show.
The creative team have already auditioned hundreds of actors for roles — including Benjamin Purkiss and Christina Bennington, who are likely to appear in the show.
