We Will Rock you is a pop rock fantasy. The musical has been running in London’s West End for over ten years will other productions in Ireland, Australia, Russia, Spain, Japan, South Africa, Zurich, Vienna and Hong Kong.
Director and book writer, Ben Elton fuses Arthurian legend with Orwellian overtones as his hero Galileo goes on a search to find the last musical instrument on earth.
Along the way he encounters Scaramouche and the Bohemenians all the while evading the clutches of Khashoggi and the Killer Queen.
All in all, We Will Rock You is the perfect reason to roll out the magnificent catalogue of Queen songs that make up the score for this pop musical. Supervised by Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen every number is delivered with the passion and theatricality that was synonymous with Queen. Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Who Wants To Live Forever are among the Queen hits you’ll see on stage.
The evening is made complete with a rousing rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody – what more could you want from an evening in the theatre?
