Former X-Factor contestant Jordan Luke Gage is raring to go after securing the lead role in the smash hit show Bat Out of Hell – The Musical next month.
The 25-year-old actor, model and singer will play Strat at the Dominion Theatre from 3rd September.
Best known for his roles in the films Cilla (2014) and Cucumber (2015), Jordan has been promoted; he made his West End debut as Hoffman in Bat Out of Hell and was an alternate Strat to Andrew Polec, who bows out on 1st September.
After the news was announced he said: “I’m overwhelmed to be taking over this iconic role.
“Being part of this incredible show and company has been a life-changing experience for me and I have learned so much from working with the extraordinary talent that is Andrew Polec.
“I’m so excited to get started. I feel honoured and humbled to be given the chance to sing Jim Steinman and Meatloaf’s stunning score and to work with the wonderful people who make up the ‘Bat family’. Rock and roll dreams do come true!”
The musical, a romantic adventure about rebellious youth and passionate love, set against the backdrop of a post-cataclysmic city, has wowed critics and the public alike since it launched in 2017 and has since been seen by 650,000 people.
It is based on the songs from the album Bat Out Of Hell, which became one of the most successful recordings in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide since 1977.
Audiences will also get the chance to sing along with special performances on Tuesday, 27th November and Monday, 31st December, when the production will feature a subtitle screen with lyrics.
