"This is a truly staggering piece of musical theatre, which breaks new boundaries in its staging, choreography and concept on an epic scale (...) a veritable feast for the eyes at every twist and turn of what is a dark, daring and provocative work sharply directed by Jay Scheib.

"An extraordinary, high-octane, multimedia masterpiece, incredibly staged on a colossal scale, Bat Out of Hell is surely the must-see theatrical event of the year........ Constantly challenging audience expectations and the possibilities of the theatre space, director Jay Scheib and choreographer Emma Portner’s flawless production is a sure-fire masterpiece, and one that has raised the musical theatre bar quite significantly."

"Sometimes when it is difficult for your eyes and ears to believe what you have just witnessed, then putting it into words becomes a whole lot trickier. (...) The one thing that makes this show stand out from all the rest is as I mentioned earlier the staging. This is not your typical musical, just when you think you have seen everything on stage, something else happens right up until the final beat of the show when the bats are finally released from Hell! (...) This show has literally changed the way musicals are staged forever. Set designer Jon Bausor has created the most incredible canvas on which this talented company perform. Add to this spectacular lighting from Patrick Woodroffe and video design from Finn Ross it is no less than a visual multi-media masterpiece."
