Superb performance of 'Bat out of Hell'

Brilliant show! Loved it! Bar too busy and expectedly pricy. Seats rather uncomfortable but had a great night! Thanks 😊

What an amazing show, the cast sang and danced their hearts out. The music is just amazing anyway but to see it on stage as it was meant to be, a musical, just incredible. So much talent in theatres today, don't get the recognition or the money like some of these so called celebrities , that's my whinge done. Seriously... More

Wow. Second row seats and a champagne package made this an even nicer treat. Olde worlde theatre with very friendly staff. But the show. Just wow. So much life and energy from the young cast. Absolutely great fun. Setting his own rock opera songs to a story was inevitably going to be a bit camp but it fitted together nicely... More

Went along with my husband and 15 year old daughter to watch this much anticipated musical. WOW...... What an amazing experience. The whole cast were absolutely faultless,with their singing and dancing abilities beyond exceptional. The power and emotion shown by every character was breathtaking, and the added bits of comedy amazing. The scenery changes and special effects just added to... More

Fab show. The seats are fine, yes drinks are expensive, and toilets aren't the best but isn't that the case in most older theatres? If you even like the 2 Bat Out Of Hell albums a little you have to see this. Fab cast, great songs, sets excitingly different and​ I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would love to see it... More

I went to see the musical "Bat out of Hell". I was a tad apprehensive, as the last time I went to the Opera House - to see a play, I could hardly hear the dialogue. This was much, much better. My ticket was for the Gallery £27.50, but on collecting my ticket from the box office, I was informed... More

Excellent acoustics, cast and set! Hooked from the start! Music was fantastic - storyline typical of musical theatre - boy meets girl, falls in love etc. Always been a Steinman and Meatloaf fan and the cast vocals were brilliant. Would definitely watch over and over again! Ignore some of the negative reviews about toilets, drink prices etc... Always expect queues... More
