Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical has announced Jordan Luke Gage will be taking on the lead role of Strat from 3 September. Jordan Luke Gage made his West End debut as Hoffman in the show, whilst also performing as an alternate Strat to Andrew Polec, who will be leaving the production on September 1st.
Gage commented on taking on the role: “I’m overwhelmed to be taking over the iconic role of Strat in Bat Out Of Hell. 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 want to thank everyone at Bat out of Hell for giving me this opportunity and to thank Andrew for his support and friendship. He has been an outstanding Strat, a deserved winner of the Joe Allen Best West End Debut Award and an inspiration. I wish him love and every success on his journey. 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; the company, the production and creative teams, the crew and, of course, the fans. Rock and Roll dreams DO come true!”
Simon Gordon who performs as Esquivel in the show will continue to be the alternate Strat.
