Love and Death and an American Guitar

Love and Death and an American Guitar is back due to an overwhelming response following an extremely successful run as part of The Hayes Theatre Co inaugural Cabaret Season. The production will make its return to the Hayes Theatre stage for three nights only.

“Everything in the show is pretty much the same, expect for some tweaking and editing,” says star Toby Francis, “the Hayes Theatre Co is such an amazing setting for this show as it is small and the acoustics are great!”

Love and Death and an American Guitar depicts the reality of the genius responsible for the iconic rock album Bat Out of Hell. It focuses on the personal and professional life of composer, Jim Steinman.

“It shows a very human and relatable side to Jim Steinman and I think the story of Neverland is quite fun,” says Francis of the concept for a rock opera based on Peter Pan that eventually spawned Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell instead. “Jim Steinman wrote some of the biggest and best rock epics of all time, you should absolutely get out of the house and check it out.”

Toby Francis’ rock tenor awaits audiences on this journey through music like a ‘bat out of hell’. (CT)
