Possibly the most dreadful show I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot. Cast can sing but can't act, script absolutely cringe making and puerile. Production overblown and messy which is a case of throw a lot of money at the stage to make up for the lack of creativity. Speechless as to how this can justify a west end run, regardless of how short.

Utter rubbish! I was really looking forward to seeing this as it is one of my favourite albums but when it descended into watching people "making out" on the back of a car i was crying with laughter - but not in a good way.

So bad we left at the interval - couldn't take any more

Wow what an evening. Fantastic show, loved it from the explosive start and didn't want it to end. The cast were superb and the set amazing. Thank you for a truly great experience.

Saw this on a Monday 12th June and was slightly disappointed that the normal male lead was not appearing.

But as soon as the Alternate appeared on stage any doubts I had dissapted quickly.

The story line is quite simple, boy meets girl, girl meets boy, they fall in love. Her dad doesnt like it and some turmoil ensues.

The sub plot revolves around the relationship of the father and mothers relationship.

So not a complex story line, but this show is about the music of Jim Steinman.

Did it make the hairs on the back of my neck .... yep it had its moments and with hits such as paradise by the dashboard light cleverly done, along with I'd do anything for love, bat out of hell as well as dead ringer for love certainly certainly hit the highs.

If your not a fan of Meat loaf, there's no point .... if you are then there will always be that trade off between Meat Loaf and a West End Show....

I for one thought the show was superb and will return ...

Congratulations to the cast and thankyou for a really enjoyable evening.

This is what the future of musical theatre is all about! For the fans of Meatloaf there's most of the songs you would expect to have in there, delivered amazingly by the cast and for those (like my husband) who aren't true believers the sheer spectacle and effects carried the night. It was a full house on a Tuesday, generated a standing ovation from the entire theatre, and the most positive comments I've ever heard from a departing audience as we made our way out.

If I could get tickets for another performance I would!

The lead performers (male & female) are stronger singers, but the story is woolly and the musical feels constrained by some of the songs. When the show goes full rock, its a nice show, but the slow/soft songs in between lack energy. In the end abit disappointed as the cast themselves put full effort into the show.

Simply cannot believe how brilliant this was. Absolutely loved it from start to end. The singing and acting is outstanding. We left on such a high. Loved it so much that we've booked to go again on the final night.

Have seen this production at both Manchester and London. Absolutely superb, though I have to say that thought the Manchester performance was better! They have changed the dance routines for London, leaving out one of the best bits! Costume changes too - shame, rather liked the blue suits the boys wore in Manchester!! Aside from that, loved the show and have 2 more sets of tickets booked. Note - balcony seats not great, you are craning to see a lot of what happens at the front and peoples heads are cut off when they do the bedroom bits.
