Love and Death: The Songs of Jim Steinman

Winner of the 2014 Sydney Theatre Awards Best Cabaret Production, Love and Death and an American Guitar returns the Hayes Theatre Co for two nights only. Set just a few years after the release of iconic rock album Bat Out of Hell, Love and Death lifts the curtain on the genius responsible for the album’s success, composer Jim Steinman.

Written and performed by Toby Francis (Blokelahoma!, Dogfight) with Musical Direction and Arrangements by Andrew Worboys (Sweet Charity, Little Shop of Horrors), Love and Death sees Steinman return to the writing desk in an effort to complete his stage adaptation of Peter Pan –a rock opera entitled Neverland.

Taking place against the backdrop of Steinman’s struggle with a lack of public and professional recognition, unpaid royalties, and lost friendships — and boasting a collection of some of the biggest rock songs of all time — Love and Death is an epic yet intimate glimpse into the fictional world of one of modern music’s greatest talents.

Written by Toby Francis
Musical Direction by Andrew Worboys
Directed by Neil Gooding
