Come and discover Bat Out of Hell, Jim Steinman’s reworking of the story of a futuristic Peter Pan. With a similar kind of love story, albeit with much more rock’n’roll, Bat Out of Hell The Musical is based on Meat Loaf’s well-known trilogy: Bat Out of Hell, Back into Hell and The Monster is Loose.
Directed by Jay Scheib, the musical premiered in Manchester in February 2017. It wasn't long before its enormous success spawned versions in other countries, and shows are now in residence in Toronto, Oberhausen and London.
Running time 3 hours approximately
Recommended age: For the over 12s
The musical is playing at the Dominion Theatre. Tickets are available in two main areas and prices vary quite considerably.
Stalls: The stalls offer excellent views of the stage and of course, the comfort one would expect from seats of this type. Prices range from £115 in the central area where the visibility is best, to £15 in the last rows.
Circle: Don’t let them fool you, the circle at the Dominion Theatre can offer visibility and comfort just as good as anything you’ll find in the classic stalls area. As well as Premium Level 1 seats, this area also offers all the other levels, which means that prices range from £115 to just £15. (Not recommended for persons with reduced mobility)
Manhattan, 2030. In a post-apocalyptic world, Strat and the kids known as the “Lost Boys” form a band with a strange genetic modification which means that whenever they turn 18, they stay that age forever. This band of bikers lives in the abandoned tube stations of Obsidian, whose streets are controlled by Falco, a cruel multimillionaire tyrant.
We’ll also meet Raven, Falco’s young daughter who has just turned 18 and who lives under lock and key in a tower, overprotected by her father. Even though she lives in the same city as Strat, hers is a quite different reality.
Bat Out of Hell is a story of the love that grows between two very different young people; it is the story of their difficulties, their struggle against authority and their attempt to escape. It is also the story of Tink, a member of the “Lost Boys” who is secretly in love with Strat.
The address of the Dominion Theatre is 268-269 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 7AQ.

Recommended age: Due to strong language, partial nudity and the sexual nature of part of the plot, this musical is not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Accessibility: The Dominion Theatre is strongly committed to accessibility so that everyone can enjoy the show.

Entrance from the street is fully accessible, with no steps and with specially wide doors. The circle is not recommended for people in wheelchairs or with reduced mobility on account of the number of stairs which separate it from the lobby. Although the lobby is fully accessible, there is nowhere to sit down. As a result, the public will not be able to sit until the doors to the theatre and circle are opened.
Seats for wheelchairs: Stalls ZZ50 and XX50
Seats with extra leg space: Stalls Row A and Stalls N 12 & N 39, O 12 & O 39, Z 1 & Z 50.
Guide dogs: Guide dogs may enter the theatre. However, due to the loud nature of the show, you may prefer to leave them with theatre staff the theatre outside the venue. They will be happy to look after them.
Do you want to see Bat Out of Hell? Don’t worry if you’re on a tight budget!
How can I get my hands on cheap tickets? You can see this show and enjoy it just as much as anybody else for only £15, both in the circle and in the stalls. Level 4 seats can be found on both levels (some do offer low visibility however). Sometimes single seats can be left over and put on sale at this price.
The stalls area also has lots of Level 3 seats, which cost £30. These offer better conditions and can even be in the fourth row (some seats have reduced visibility due to the sound system or to their being very close to the stage).
