Dark Shadows and Dangerous DreamsMature

This is dedicated to the lyrics of Jim Steinman, and is also dedicated to my late brother Paul who
loved bat out of hell and his motorbike. Jim Steinman has had no hand in this writing. I was listening
to his music, and read his play. I was inspired by his music and lyrics to write a musical to share
with you guy's. If anyone a Jim Steinman's music/lyrics--- Bad for Good, Pandora's box, Bat out of
hell and the song Total Eclipse of the heart sung by Bonnie Tyler, then I invite you to take th

Dreams

READY? LETS GO!!!!

ACT 1 THE BREAKING FREE

Across space and time, between light and dark, life and death and the shadows, there is a love that

begins and ends with a lot of mystery. Lets take a look-------

SCENE SETTING- 1

The stage is set. Curtain's open,. It's dark and misty. There's a strange noise and flashes of light.

There is a sound of music -( PROLOGUE- THE STORM from Bad For Good Album) There is

movement, you can see them beyond – Dancing in the dark. They are dressed in black, you can just

see them. The shadows, the shadows. Music finishes and one of the shadows see a vision of a girl

as he watches her through a strange style misty mirror. She can't see him , just a dark figure

through the mirror. He starts to sing and her reflection sings with him. (THEY SING TOGETHER-”I'd

do anything for love but I won't do that”)--From BAT OUT OF HELL 2---Album

( He is looking at her as he starts to sing. In the reflection she sits by her dressing table looking at

him through the mirror listening. She can just make him out)--- SHE HEARS HIM---

And I would do anything for love,

I'd run right into hell and back,

I would do anything for love,

I'll never lie to you and that's a fact

(ARIEL LIFTS UP HER HAND AND WITH HER FINGERS TOUCHES THE MIRROR. HE PLACES HIS

HAND ON HER'S AS SHE LOOKS INTO HIS DARK EYES.)

But I'll never forget the way you feel right now

Oh no-

No way-

And I would do anything for love,

But I won't do that,

No I won't do -

Anything for love,

Oh I would do anything for love,

I would do anything for love,

But I won't do that,

No I won't do that.

And some days it don't come easy,

And some days it don't come hard

Some days it don't come at all,

And these are the days that never end

(HE TRACES HER FACE DOWN THE MIRROR.)

And some nights you're breathing fire,

And some nights you're carved in ice,

Some nights you're like nothing I've ever

seen before, or will again.

And maybe I'm crazy,

Oh it's crazy and it's true,

I know you can save me,

no one else can save me now but you.

( RAISES HIS HAND UP AND LOOKING AT HER REFLECTION, BRINGS HAND DOWN SLOWLY.)

As long as the planets are turning,

As long as the stars are burning,

As long as your dreams are coming true-

You better believe it!

That I would do anything for love,

And I'll be there till the final act

And I would do anything for love!

And I'll take a vow and seal a pact.

( SAM LOOKS CLOSELY AT HER THROUGH THE MIRROR.)

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way

tonight.

And I would do anything for love!

But I won't do that!

No I won't do that!

I would do anything for love,

anything you've been dreaming of

But I won't do that

I would do anything for love,

anything you've been dreaming of

But I won't do that

( HOLDS HIS HANDS UP AND LOOKS TOWARDS THE DARK HEAVENS THEN LOOKS AT HER.)

And some days I pray for silence,

And some days I pray for soul,

Some days I just pray to the God

of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N' Roll.

And some nights I lose the feeling,

And some nights I lose control

Some nights I just lose it all

when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

(SAM LOOKS INTO HER EYES, WANTING TO HOLD HER, RUNNING HIS HANDS DOWN THE MIRROR

And maybe I'm lonely,

That's all I'm qualified to be,

There's just one and only,

The one and only promise I can keep.

As long as the wheels are turning,

As long as the fires are burning,

As long as your prayers are coming true,

You better believe it!

That I would do anything for love,

And you know it's true and that's a fact,

I would do anything for love,

And there'll never be no turning back

But I'll never do it better than I do it with you,

So long,

So long

And I would do anything for love,

Oh I would do anything for love,

I would do anything for love,

But I won't do that, no,

No. No, I won't do that!

( WHILE LOOKING DEEPLY INTO HER EYES WITH SUCH PASSION FOR HER, SUCH MAGIC)

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that....

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

I would do anything for love,

A anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

I would do anything for love,

Anything you've been dreaming of,

But I just won't do that...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life,

no way

And I would do anything for love,

Oh I would do anything for love,

Oh I would do anything for love,

( LOOKS AT HER TRACING THE LINES OF HER FACE THROUGH THE MIRRORS REFLECTION.)

but I won't do that,

No I won't do that.

(ARIEL LOOKS DEEP INTO HIS SOUL THROUGH HIS EYES.)

[Girl:] Will you raise me up,

Will you help me down?

Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?

Will you make it all a little less cold?

[Boy:] I can do that! I can do that!

[Girl:] Will you hold me sacred?

Will you hold me tight?

Can you colorize my life,

I'm so sick of black and white?

Can you make it all a little less old?

[Boy:] I can do that! I can do that!

[Girl:] Will you make me some magic,

with your own two hands? (LOOKS AT HER HANDS.)

Can you build me an emerald city with these grains of sand?

Can you give me something I can take home?

[Boy;] I can do that! I can do that!

[Girl:] Will you cater to every fantasy I got?

Will you hose me down with holy water - if I get to hot? Ha

Will you take me places I've never known?

[Boy:] I can do that! I can do that!

[Girl:] After a while you'll forget everything

It was a brief interlude and a mid-summer night's fling

Then you'll see that it's time to move on. (LOOKS DOWN.)

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

[Girl:] I know the territory, I've been around

It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down

And sooner or later, you'll be screwing around.

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

Anything for love,

Oh I would do anything for love

PAGE 5

I would do anything for love,

But I won't do that,

No I won't do that.

(THE STAGE LIGHTS FADE FROM THE MIRROR AND SHINE ON HIM.)

(HE MUST LEAVE, MUST LEAVE, MUST LEAVE. THERE'S A LOUD PAINFUL SCREAM, HE HAS

FINALLY BROKEN OUT. HE RUNS ACROSS TIME, ACROSS SPACE THROUGH THE DARKNESS

INTO THE LIGHT OH THE PAIN AS IT RACE'S THROUGH HIS SHADOWY BODY AS HE BECOMES

FLESH. THE BLACK CLOTHING COMES OFF AS HE BECOMES HUMAN. THE AUDIENCE CAN NOW

SEE HIM.

HE LOOKS AT HIMSELF, HE FEELS THE POWER OF HER RUNNING

 

The End
