The theatre show blew audiences away in the UK, Canada and USA and given Jim Steinman’s iconic masterpiece Bat Out Of Hell is the highest selling album of all time in Australia, we know audiences here are going to love it.”

That experience — electrifying and giddy and guaranteed to tap into every playgoer’s inner rock god — can be had at the Jim Steinman musical Bat Out of Hell which is all but blasting an adoring audience out of their seats. Count me among the adorers.”
