The show will run at the city’s Lyceum Theatre from May 3 to 7 and tickets are on sale now.

Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical is a story of teenage love and youthful rebellion, as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen for Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco. Propelled by the songs of Jim Steinman, the jukebox musical is packed with such hits as You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth and I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That).

This high-octane adventure won the Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Awards and was nominated for eight WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical.
