We Will Rock You
Advantages: You will never listen to another Queen song without your memories of this show!
Disadvantages: Absolutely Nothing ( with the exception of the bar prices )
I REALLY REALLY wanted to see this show for years and luckily enough for Xmas last year my son brought me two tickets to go and see it in March. I was beside myself with excitement!
As time got nearer I couldn't wait, I had heard all different things about it ; It was very loud, like going to a rock concert so I was not sure what to expect.
When I entered the theatre (Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road, right outisde the tube station) it struck me as being quite a small theatre which I think I prefer, than it being some big arena to get lost in. We decided to have a quick drink before the show started (much to my husbands horror not the beer the PRICE!) it was very expensive which I suppose you would expect for a theatre £4 for a small bottle of lager(not quite wetherspoon prices!). Needless to say we only had the one. We had great seats about five rows from the front in the middle (I wouldn't think there is a bad seat as it's not that big a theatre).
When the lights went down and the music started it sent shivers down my spine, it was loud but not so loud you couldn't speak to the person with you.
I may sound stupid but when it started I thought hang on a minute it's a play (I really don't know what I was expecting maybe a tribute band!).
I was a bit uncomfortable as my husband hates plays,dramas ect... but
then it burst alive with dancers and flashing lights it was fantastic. The story
is that it is set in the future in GA GA Land a happy safe place where everyone is the same, they think the same, dress the same have the same thoughts and listen to the same music. All musical instruments are banned
and they have no choice in music!
The main character is Galileo who wants to change everything. He mets up with Scaramouch who urges him to change the world of music. So they go on a journey where they met a group of underground rebels who create their own version of music. They have to deal with the Evil Queen who hates rock music and anyone who listens to it will be banished with the help of her aide Khashoggi. Well to cut a long story short as I could be here all day as there is so much to say, it all ends good !
Ben Elton has done a fantastic job of combining the story and music together. It works great and if you are a Queen fan then it is a must to go
and see this absolutey fantastic show. I enjoyed it so much I'm going again
in 2 weeks with my daughter this time! (hubby did enjoy it even though
he tried not to!)
Just to say that on LastMinute.com at the moment they are doing tickets with 50% of as in July they are reshuffling the cast with some new actors
coming in! It will still be great!
Summary: Once you have been once you will want to go again thats for sure!
