Excellent production. Didn t know all the songs but that didn't matter as was so very good. Standing ovation at the end was well deserved. Would happily go again. Bar prices silly and bag was searched!!!

Very poor ladies toilet facilities. I won't visit venue again. Crowds of people in stairwells prior to show as staff wouldn't let them in. The Bat out of hell show was fabulous

Weird,bizarre,abstract storyline, unenjoyable first half, some people left during the second half. Good finale, talented cast, spectacular set, but strange & disappointing script.

Well worth the 40 year wait to see it on stage! - like formula 1 it is the song list (car) rather than the performers (driver) that steal the show - a shame Meatloaf is not well enough as in his pomp would have added...More

If you're looking for a steakhouse Hawksmoor and Gaucho are both five minutes up Deansgate from the Opera House. They are both a bit pricey but fantastic steaks. My favourite is Gaucho.
