WATCH: Stars of Meatloaf Musical Arrive In Dublin


Wednesday August 31 2022 marks the official night of the award winning hit Bat Out of Hell – The Musical playing at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre until September 10 2022.

I chatted with leading cast Glenn Adamson (American Idiot), Martha Kirby (Grease, Rags the Musical) and and Rob Fowler (Mamma Mia!, Bat Out of Hell) about the production that wowed critics and public alike when it played limited seasons at Manchester Opera House, London Coliseum and London’s Dominion Theatre from 2017 to 2019.

Bat Out of Hell – The Musical won the Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Awards and was nominated for 8 WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical.

For the stage musical, the legendary and award-winning Jim Steinman incorporated iconic songs from the Bat Out of Hell albums, including You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth, Bat Out of Hell, I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That) and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs, What Part of My Body Hurts the Most and Not Allowed to Love.

The album Bat Out of Hell was one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide.  16 years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, which contained the massive hit I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).

In Bat Out of Hell – The Musical, the electrifying rock songs of Mr Steinman propel an epic story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.

BAT OUT OF HELL, will play until September 10 2022. Tickets from €21.00 are on sale now.
