We Will Rock You
Advantages: Amazing music, funny, great quality production
Disadvantages: Weak story line
I was very excited to see We Will Rock You as I am a big fan of both Queen and musicals. There are many amazing aspects of this musical and the severely mediocre story line does not detract from the incredible music. The story is very much based around many classic Queen hits, this show is all about the music and the story line is weak but the music is so strong it really doesn't matter. The story is based in the future where all music is banned by an evil dominatrix has taken over the world with the aim of brainwashing everyone so they are unable to think for themselves. The hero's of the show are rebels who love music and can not be brainwashed like all the others, they are taken in by underground rebels who live for music that is now illegal. The hero's have a quest to defeat the evil dominatrix and restore music to the world by finding the phantom guitar that once belonged to rock legends Queen. The music in the show is simply amazing, all the music is based on classic Queen songs with some modern twists. If you are a Queen fan then you will love this show, I wouldn't recommended this show to anyone who does not like Queen. The acting, singing and dancing is all great quality which you would expect from a West End show. The story written by Ben Elton is weak but very funny at times and sets the music off wonderfully. Overall this is a great show for the whole family as long as you like Queen.
Summary: Great night out for any Queen fan
