Bat Out Of Hell to perform at the 18th Annual WhatsOnStage Awards

Jim Steinman's musical opened at the London Coliseum last year and will return to the Dominion Theatre in April


The cast of Jim Steinman's Bat Out of Hell will perform at this year's WhatsOnStage Awards concert at the Prince of Wales Theatre next month.

They join the previously announced Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Tyrone Huntley (Dreamgirls), Alice Fearn (Wicked) and Janie Dee (Follies).

Steinman's musical features songs from the Meat Loaf albums of the same name including "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)", "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" and the title song. The original London run starred Christina Bennington and Andrew Polec as romantic leads Raven and Strat.

The concert will be hosted by Trevor Dion Nicholas and Vikki Stone, with direction from Russell Labey and musical supervision by Alex Parker. It is produced by WhatsOnStage and Stuart Piper for Cole Kitchenn.

The annual ceremony takes place at the Prince of Wales Theatre on 25 February 2018 and will see the winners of this year's WhatsOnStage Awards announced, as well as performances from some of the UK's top theatre talent.

The WhatsOnStage Award nominees were announced in December, with Bat Out of Hell and 42nd Street leading the way with eight nominations each. In the Best Actor in a Play category, Andrew Garfield (Angels in America), Andrew Scott (Hamlet), Bryan Cranston (Network), David Tennant (Don Juan in Soho) and Martin Freeman (Labour of Love) are all recognised. Eve Best (Love in Idleness), Imelda Staunton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Olivia Colman (Mosquitoes), Natalie Dormer (Venus in Fur) and Tamsin Greig (Labour of Love) compete for Best Actress in a Play.

Tickets for the concert are available for the public to buy, and the awards themselves are the only major theatre awards in which the audience choose who wins at every stage of the voting.
