We Will Rock You is the smash hit musical which uses the hits of one of the greatest British bands in modern music history - Queen.  The strengths of the piece lie very much in the music itself.  Lively new arrangements of their greatest hits are belted out by some of the finest young talent you will find on a London Stage.  Even nine years after it first opened (making it the longest running show in the history of the Dominion Theatre and the 9th longest running show in the West End) the show has a freshness and vitality that can only be described as infectious.

Set in a future where style, art and music are all predetermined and dictated to the people by the state, the world has become a bland place without artistic or emotional expression. The Bohemians (the rebel resistance group) want to liberate the world from this dictatorial regime by forming their own bands and writing and performing their own music.  To do this they must find the mythical Axe and a man called Galileo to use it.  However, they are pursued by the Ga Ga cops, and should they be taken before the Killer Queen the resistance would be crushed.

The story itself is not the star of this show.  It acts like a rock concert theme more than musical plot.  However, rock concert feel is what this show does best.  It is big, loud and proud of it.  The music is wonderful and has audiences on their feet every night.  Songs such as Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, A Kind Of Magic and Somebody to Love are all timeless classics that sound wonderful live by this current cast (including Brenda Edwards of X Factor Fame as Killer Queen).  If you are a long time fan of Queen or want to introduce a younger audience to their brilliance, We Will Rock You will not disappoint.

Now Booking until April 2011.

We Will Rock You - Music and Lyrics by Queen - Book and Direction by Ben Elton. Showing at Dominion Theatre - 268-269 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 7AQ.
