A piano-playing count, a professor singing on an excersice bike, a sanatorium instead of an inn and locking up Sarah with a power drill? It all sound a bit weird, but it's reallity in the swiss city of St.Gallen where their non-replica version of the musical "Tanz der Vampire" is running. The costumes, choreography sers are very different, but the music and book is pretty much the same, so even though is a strange experience it's nowhere near the Broadway dissaster.
Preview are over for "Bat out of hell - the Musical" in Manchester as yesterday was official opening night and so also the time for the official reviews. It does seem that Jim Steinman has a new ht musical on his hand:
The new album from Tyce Green is planned to be relased on March 10th and the album is available for preorder on Itunes, including 2 track ready for down. The new album has 16 track all written by Jim Steinman and produced by Zak Lloyd. Tyce has been receiving high praise for his performances at the Jim Steinman tribute concerts at Feinsteins/54 Below in New York.
For most people the city of Manchester is synonomous with the 2 famous football teams, but maybe in the future if will also be famous for being the site of the very first public performance of the Bat out of hell musical. Friday the city was the setting for the first af many previews to test out the show before the official London premier in June.
