"I try to set up situations where things are definitely going to get out of control. Their skill will keep them from losing their balance, but they'll always be on the edge. And in a way that's a lot of what Jim Steinman's music is about, so it kinda goes together" - Jay Scheib

5th March 2017 - a little special effect in the show you just don't see enough of - the mechanical bats! They're so cool!! Kazuhiko Kakuta in Japan built these, you can see - they can fly around freely (but in the show they're sent to fly along guide wires, because no-one can pilot them safely in the dark).


17th February 2017 - The show opened for previews at the Manchester Opera House, and the promoters were busy rushing around all night filming all the fans who had turned up, for their reactions to the show.

This post is dedicated to William Groenindijk (aka EvilNickname), the first fan to speak in this video, who passed away following surgery in early 2019. We miss you dearly.
