WINNER: BEST MUSICAL, Evening Standard
BAT OUT OF HELL THE MUSICAL "is a breathtaking new musical — a joy ride of teenage love, youthful rebellion and and just plain living the rock’n’roll dream. This high-octane adventure tears through Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits including I Would Do Anything For Love (but I won't do that), Paradise by the Dashboard Light, Dead Ringer For Love, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad and Bat Out of Hell.
With a multi award-winning creative team from the world of Theatre, Opera, Music and Film, this 'jaw-dropping spectacle' (Evening Standard) plays Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre from 14 October!"

The Royal Opera presents the world premiere of a new work by exciting young composer Na’ama Zisser
Directed by Jay Scheib in a soundworld that unites contemporary opera idioms with the music of Orthodox Hasidic Judaism.
“The past returns to throw the future into question in Na’ama Zisser’s anguished drama about family secrets and lost love — a constantly shifting soundscape of darkening harmonies and subtle textural gradations that create continuously evolving patterns of tension and release — It’s effectively done — Jay Scheib’s production evokes the threatening atmosphere of the darkened city. Even in the blackout, there is nowhere to hide.”

Platonov, or the Disinherited
adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the play by Chekhov
January 8-24, 2014 at The Kitchen and simulcast Live as a feature film at BAM Rose Cinema in Brooklyn (Thursday nights), and AMC Empire 25 in Times Square (Wednesday nights).
"The Disinherited," after the fragment Platonov by Anton Chekhov, is a new live cinema performance adaptation of Chekhov’s first full-length play chronicling an emotionally bankrupt society of anti-heroes who are, less heroically, also losing their loves, their homes, and perhaps, their humanity as well. In an unprecedented experiment, the performance is realized simultaneously as live play (Platonov) and feature film, shot and edited in real time at The Kitchen in downtown New York City and simulcast to BAM Rose Cinemas. This physically daring and emotionally charged performance brings director Jay Scheib’s acclaimed vision to the Cinema for the first time.
