We Will Rock You ... Arlene Phillips and designs by Mark Fisher and Willie Williams. We Will Rock You is a jukebox musical, based on the songs of Queen and named after their hit single of the same name. The musical was written by English comedian and author Ben Elton in collaboration with Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor. The story takes place in a tongue-in-cheek dystopian future where originality and individuality are shunned, and a lone "Dreamer" appears who can fulfil a prophecy that will enable the return of rock 'n roll.
Newest Review: ... the price we paid and feel I got good value for money. Summary I would highly recommend a visit to the musical We Will Rock You. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. The cast very superb, all of them has great voices, especially Scaramouche and I felt that each character was believable. The costumes were also great, with matching costumes for the Gaga Kids and a gothic look for ... more

For Valentines Day this year, I decided to buy my other half tickets to see We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre in London. History Six years ago, the remaining members of the group Queen (obviously minus Freddie Mercury) joined together with Ben Elton and an internationally renowned creative team to create the stage show We Will Rock You. This musical features 31 of Queen's hits. The first show of We Will Rock You took place in May 2002 at the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road in London. This show has now been running for the last six years and all shows are still sold out so that in itself goes some way to showing you just how popular We ... Read the complete review

I saw this musical last year and it was the first ever musical I had ever seen. I was absolutely amazed by how good it was. It's performed in the Dominion Theatre in London. Whilst tickets are quite expensive at around £60 for the best seats (which in my opinion are in the middle towards the front) they are more than worth it. The gift shop wasn't too expensive, although there was a sweet stand which sold things like cotton candy and popcorn, and obviously sweets, which was slightly overpriced, but they usually are in these sort of places. The bar was very nice, and allowed you to book drinks for the interval so that you didn't have to queue, which we made ... Read the complete review

This has to be one of the best musicals i've ever seen. so good in fact i saw it twice in 3 months! it defiantly has the wow factor that wicked and hairspray both have. the theatre is huge giving a vibrant atmosphere that all the audience can get involved in, so that by the end there is none left sitting down. i have to say that at the moment there are a lot of half price tickets around on the internet for the show so dont pay full price when you dont have too! the soundtrack itself is brill, only problem is that it leaves a few songs such as 'crazy little thing called love'. its also a live recording rather than studio recorded, giving you the opportunity to relive the .

We Will Rock You has to be simply the best musical on offer and I only wished that I lived a little nearer to London so I could see it much much more! I have always been a fan of Queen and admittedly this was the main reason I wanted to see this show. I think any musical you go and see where you are already familiar with the songs and words is already onto a winner for me. Having said that the first time I went I dragged a long a relative who wasn't even a fan of Queen's music and she still said it was one of the most fantastic musicals she had seen. So for all of you who are dubious about the Queen aspect, then don't be! The story itself makes for ... Read the complete review

Somehow over the years, when anyone I know reviews a musical they tell me it was amazing and the whole crowd were singing along, I have been to quite a few musicals and had never experience this until We Will Rock You. All in all this musical fulfilled my dream of audience participation! The story is set in the future and starts off by showing where the music industry went wrong and how all music has become manufactured and instruments are banned. Everyone on the planet is a GaGa kid, i.e. they are all programmed to like the same music, food, etc and everyone thinks alike. However a group of rebels exist, these people are known as the bohemians, the two main ... Read the complete review
