PARIS HOTEL RESORT LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY

  MALE AND FEMALE VOCALISTS & DANCERS WHO SING.

After an incredibly successful run in Manchester, The London Coliseum, The Dominion Theatre, New York City Center, Toronto, and a UK Tour Bat Out of Hell is preparing for a residency at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas. 

Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell – the Musical is a Rocky-Horror-Romeo-and-Juliet celebration of star-crossed lovers from opposite sides of the tracks caught in a city teetering on the brink of disaster. When Raven falls in love with the rebellious Strat all bets are off in this love-at-all-costs, rock-and-roll roller-coaster of uncompromising youth. 

BAT OUT OF HELL became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. 16 years later, Steinman scored again with ‘Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell’, which contained the massive hit ‘I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)’.
