BAT OUT OF HELLAs promised, Jim Steinman's musical of Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell is returning to the West End next year playing at London's Dominion Theatre from 2nd April .

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 adapted the book for the  show.

Casting news is that Pennsylvania actor  Andrew Polec returns to play the angry young Strat (the teenager who  chases what he wants: girls, motorbikes, and lots of rock ‘n’ roll’) with Belfast-born Christina Bennington again playing Raven, who is willing to risk everything to be with Strat — the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton again play Raven’s parents Falco and Sloane with Giovanni Spanó as Ledoux and Patrick Sullivan as Blake. Also returning are Emily Benjamin, Georgia Carling, Natalie Chua, Jonathan Cordin, Hannah Ducharme, Isaac Edwards, Aston Newman Hannington, Eve Norris and Courtney Stapleton. (At certain performances, the role of Strat will be played by Simon Gordon or Jordon Gage).

New cast members include Alex Thomas-Smith (Tink), Wayne Robinson (Jagwire), Kyle Anthony, Christopher Cameron, Rob Copeland, Collette Guitart, Eric Hallengren, Vicki Manser, Rhianne-Louise McCaulsky, Joseph Peacock, Kyle Roberts, Craig Ryder, Dawnita Smith, Julie Stark, Charlotte Anne Steen and Sam Toland.
