Bat Out Of Hell The Musical, Dominion Theatre - ★★★ - Until January 5, 2019


“Bat Out of Hell” is loosely based on “Peter Pan,” but if you care about a plot, you are at the wrong show. The musical is driven forward by the incessant beat of the music and not by a plot that makes any sense or by any kind of character development. The dialogue is often awkward, but the music and the theatrical effects create an experience that Meatloaf fans will love. Others will probably enjoy the show if they just manage to channel their inner rocker, and surrender to the rhythm. The choreography is a bit odd at times and characters emote from some curious positions, probably to keep the audience distracted and not over-thinking the experience. The stops are pulled out in terms of theatrical effects and you just need to sit back and go with this rock ‘n’ roll circus.
