We Will Rock You
We Will Rock You: The Queen Musical!
The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete. Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It's a safe, happy, Ga Ga World. "Is this the real life? Is it just fantasy?".... Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. Placed there in the golden age against a time when it would be needed to inspire the kids anew. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe. A crazy rebel with a heart of solid rock who will draw the guitar from the stone and play the ancient anthems.
"QUEEN's musical is kind of magic... spectacular... magnifico" The Sun
"The songs remind you just how fabulous QUEEN were" The Independent
"Exhilarating and great fun" Time Magazine
"A good night out" The Independent on Sunday
"A high-tech extravaganza" The Guardian
"We Will Rock You, at the Dominion Theatre, is big and noisy. Given that it is built around the music of the rock group Queen, whose Bohemian Rhapsody was recently voted the best pop song ever, it is also unignorable. At the same time it is a full-blown musical, not just a compilation, and half its interest lies in the story and script that have been devised for it by Ben Elton... The songs are there for those who enjoy them, the main performances have plenty of verve, and the video images that serve as a backdrop are slick and colourful." The Sunday Telegraph
We Will Rock You in London at the Dominion Theatre previewed from 26 April 2002 and opened on 14 May 2002.
