Composed by Michael Reed and Jim Steinman, with a script by Warner Brown, Garbo - the Musical, about the life of the late screen idol Greta Garbo, opened in Sweden to poor reviews in 2002.[23] Preparation for a stage musical based on the Batman comic book series began early in the decade, with Steinman working on the music and lyrics.[24] In August 2002 the New York Post reported that Warner Bros. signed Tim Burton to direct. According to an un-named source Burton was attracted to the project because it was as dark as his 1989 film Batman rather than "the goofy, campy turn the franchise took with Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, both of which were directed by Joel Schumacher."[25]. Steinman said about Burton and the project, "It's more like his first two movies than any of the other movies. It's very dark and gothic, but really wildly funny. It was my dream that he do this." [26] However, Warner Bros. cancelled its plans to cast and stage the show. Steinman has since shared some of the song demos from the show via the Dream Pollution website. The Dream Engine has, according to its website and MySpace page, also worked on recordings of some of the songs that were in the show. Greta redirects here. ...

A separate and very different show from Tanz der Vampire, Dance of the Vampires opened on Broadway on October 16, 2002. After the original director left the show, it was directed by John Rando, who joined very shortly before the opening. The book was written by David Ives and was notable for the large number of jokes, many of which had a silly or vulgar quality to them. Whereas Tanz had been a "sung-through" musical with no breaks in the music (like an opera), Dance of the Vampires was a humorous spoken play with songs inserted at some parts.

The reviews tended to be very negative. It closed on January 25, 2003 after 61 preview and 56 regular performances. Financially, it was very unsuccessful, and lost roughly $17 million. Steinman did not attend the opening night to show his disgust with the show. On his blog Steinman writes "DOTV as we know was UTTER SHIT!" in one post, and describes the production as a "shit pile" in another, also stating in separate blogs that his music was "wasted" on the show.[citation needed] In his blog, Steinman also said about Dance of the Vampires, "DOTV, which you guys know I hated & was disgusted by, & was FIRED by my manager, acting as producer!" The manager he was referring to was David Sonenberg, who was one of the producers of the show and Steinman's longtime manager.


During the concerts in his Hair Of The Dog tour, Meat Loaf told the audience that he and Steinman would be releasing a new album. Later, Meat Loaf said that "lawyers worked for over a year putting together a contract for Steinman to do Bat out of Hell III. It was one of the best producer's contracts in the history of the record business." According to Meat Loaf, the composer had suffered some health setbacks, including a heart attack. Ultimately, according to the singer, Steinman was not well enough to work on such an intense project.[3] However, Steinman's manager refuted this version, saying that Steinman's "health is excellent" and although he had some "meaningful health problems about four years ago...he's been totally healthy the last couple of years... that's not the reason he didn't participate in ("Bat III")." [3] Produced by Desmond Child, Bat out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose was released in October 2006. It has fourteen songs, seven of which were written by Steinman; five of these were covers of songs already released on other albums. The other two were adapted from Steinman's demos of songs that were intended for musical theater projects. Desmond Child Desmond Child (born 28 October 1953, Miami, Florida, USA) has worked as a music performer and songwriter. ...


This album's title was the subject of a legal battle between Steinman and Meat Loaf. Steinman had registered a trademark on the title "Bat out of Hell" in 1995, and sought to prevent Meat Loaf from using the title.[29] Meat Loaf sought to cancel Steinman's trademark and use the title. Aside from the Trademark case, he sued Steinman and longtime manager David Sonenberg for $50 million each, for a total of $100 million.[30] An out-of-court settlement was reached, ending the legal cases, allowing Meat Loaf to use the title for this album, and allowing Meat Loaf to release his recordings of the songs "In The Land of the Pig The Butcher Is King" and "Cry To Heaven".[31] The agreement allowed Steinman to use the title "Jim Steinman's Bat Out of Hell" for a musical theatre project based on the songs from Bat out of Hell. Describing it as "like Cirque du Soleil on acid," he expects it to open in London in 2009.[2] This article is about the singer. ...
