Meatloaf is coming back. Bat Out of Hell The Musical returns to the London stage after a brief hiatus across the pond in Toronto over the winter, where it went down like the proverbial “Beast From the East.”

When we saw this show last year, I was simply blown away by the music, performed by an exuberantly energetic company on a completely wild set designed by John Bausor.

This week, I wanted to give you guys the experience that we at Curtain Call had backstage during our visit. And no better an example to be in one of the boys’ dressing rooms of Giovanni Spano, Patrick Sullivan and Dom Hartley-Harris during a quick break while “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” is blaring out of the tannoy. And although they are “taking a break” in air quotes, they are busy keeping themselves warm. You can hear mid-show vocal chord steaming, working out and having a light snack…this is what it takes them to get through this huge sing of a show.
