The expression ‘Bat Out of Hell’ resonates with impulsive and reckless actions. However, in this instance Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell Musical is an impressive illustration of smooth and swashbuckling dance sequences swept across the stage at the Dominion Theatre, London.


Entwined in all of the above is a love story during the post-apocalyptic Manhattan era. Indeed, a group of insurgent youths labelling themselves as ‘The Lost’ is led by Strat (played by Andrew Polec) who fight against the oppressive regime led by Falco (played by Rob Fowler).


Strat takes an immediate liking to Falco’s daughter, Raven (played by Christina Bennington), and as such their zest for daring teenage adventures that they embark upon is a focal point of the musical. To fittingly illustrate this there is a scene where Strat and Raven revel on a motorbike to fire up the stage.

Falco’s wife Sloane (played by Sharon Sexton) reaches a threshold with his crave to control her and makes imminent plans to leave him. Consequently, here powerful singing voice left an infectious impact on the audience.


The majority of the songs played throughout are from Meat Loaf’s most storied hits, including Dead Ringer For Love and the iconic I’d Do Anything For Love. The background street art is dazzling and the rock ’n’ roll tempo ensures that there is an intimate feel between the audience and cast.


Attending a date with hell is ironically an absolute privilege where entertainment is optimum. Indeed, a ‘domino’ effect at the Dominion can be achieved by clicking here

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
