After a hugely successful run at the Manchester Opera House, Bat Out of Hell the Musical has taken London by storm. The musical – with music by Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf – has proved popular with both critics and audiences alike, while its two young leading actors – Andrew Polec and Christina Bennington – have gathered multiple plaudits for their portrayals of the love struck pairing of Strat and Raven.
Christina Bennington previously impressed London theatregoers as Kim/cover Magnolia in Show Boat at the New London Theatre and took some time off from her busy performance schedule to take our Sugar Rush Quiz.
