We Will Rock You
Advantages: The music, funny, audience participation
Disadvantages: Story sometimes weak, songs dont fit in.
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 bohemians are known as Galilleo and Scaramouche. Galilleo is known as 'the dreamer' and he receives dreams of lyrics from queen songs.
As everyone is programmed to think the same the Killer Queen and her police guard, Khashogi want to stop the bohemians from finding or creating any instruments left on the planet. The bohemians are searching for instruments hidden by queen.
The story at times can feel a bit weak, although it makes up for this by being laugh out loud funny. Often I felt that some of the songs didn't fit into the story and were just sang as they were popular queen songs. Again however the quality of the music meant you didn't really mind listening to it.
By the end of the show everyone was singing along and swaying their arms to 'We are the champions' and when a message appeared on the screen 'Do you want to hear Bohemian Rhapsody?' there was a resounding 'YES' from the theatre.
If you're someone who likes queens music then I would definitely recommend this, even if you haven't really heard all of queens catalogue I would still give it a go - if you don't like the songs Id guarantee you'll find it funny. By the end of the night I was buzzing, I probably would have went to see the show again the next night if I could have, definitely one to go see.
Summary: One of the best musicals Ive seen.
