The show incorporates iconic songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums including You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Bat Out Of Hell, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, as well as two previously unreleased songs, What Part of My Body Hurts the Most and Not Allowed to Love.

Andrew Polec stars as Strat and Christina Bennington is Raven, with Rob Fowler as Falco and Sharon Sexton as Sloane. The show is directed by Jay Schieb.
