Starring Rob Evan and featuring vocalists Elaine Caswell, Jeremey Kushnier & Nicki Richards, OVER THE TOP united, longtime Steinman collaborator, Steve Margoshes at the piano with a group of singers and musicians providing their talent to these iconic rock and theatrical masterpieces.

Jim Steinman, whose feverish college epic The Dream Engine, inspired Joseph Papp to hire him at the end of the Act 1, went on to write such standards as Bat Out Of Hell (two albums – Meat Loaf) "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Holding Out For A Hero" (Bonnie Tyler), "Making Love (Out Of Nothing At All)" (Air Supply), "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" (Celine Dion) to name a few. Beyond that, Jim Steinman has written stage musicals recently running in England (Whistle Down The Wind w/ Andrew Lloyd Webber), Sweden (Garbo), NYC and currently, in its eighth year, Tanz Der Vampires, in Hamburg and Vienna, soon to be opening in Poland and Japan.
