Verdict: Three stars.

The music of rock star Meatloaf has always been rather theatrical which is why its transition to the musical theatre stage was inevitable.

But Bat Out of Hell isn't quite like other jukebox musicals.

The audience is transported into a plot quite like nothing else and the warped fantasy takes some getting used to.

Based on Jim Steinman and Meatloaf's greatest hits - mainly the songs from the Bat Out of Hell trilogy of albums - the rock musical is a loose retelling of Peter Pan set in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan called Obsidian.

It follows the story of Strat played by Glenn Adamson, the forever young leader of 'The Lost' who has fallen in love with Raven played by Martha Kirby, the daughter of Falco played by Rob Fowler, the tyrannical ruler of Obsidian and Sloane played by Sharon Sexton.

The story initially is quite difficult to follow and perhaps the complex plot is forgiven with the presence of a masterclass of rock classics including Two Out of Three Ain't Bad and Making Love Out of Nothing At All.

It is the music that continues to shrine throughout - while piecing together the plot - with Bat Out of Hell, You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night) and Dead Ringer for Love some of the highlights.

Even the finale of songs really set the tone for the musical with It's All Coming Back to Me Now performed by an ensemble of cast including Adamson, Kirby, Fowler and Sexton in spectacular style.

While I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) thrilled the audience.

Sexton in particular has a unique rock tone to her voice which was perfect for the show and really shone through while supporting stars Joelle Moses (Zahara) and James Chisholm (Jagwire) impressed with their vocal performances throughout.

This musical is bound to please Meatloaf fans - the audience was packed with them wearing nostalgia tour t-shirts.

But for others who perhaps know some of his hits, the plot makes it difficult to fully immerse in the story.

The songs, however, make it worth the journey and the talent of the cast give the rock anthems a new flavour.

Catch Bat Out of Hell at The King's Theatre in Glasgow until Saturday, October 30.
