We Will Rock You

We Will Rock YouT833330133
We Will Rock You has been created by Ben Elton and Queen. A blend of Science Fiction, Comedy and brilliant songs by Queen. The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete. Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It's a safe, happy, Ga Ga World. On Planet Mall Rock 'n' Roll has been banned for centuries. All musical instruments have been banned. Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall, instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe. But the Bohemians must find this hero before the Company does. For if the Ga Ga Cops get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye. Where is this axe hero? Where is the Hairy One's lost axe? Where is the place of living rock?
Author Ben Elton
Music Brian May
Music Roger Taylor

User Reviews

USER (09Sep11): I love this show - saw it on tour a while back and am looking forward to seeing it again when it returns shortly ... fab evening, made me laugh, sing and smile!
USER (31Mar06): saw the show yesterday and i must go again. WOW what a great show. i would give it 1000 of of 100. i suggest that everyone shout see it.
USER (06Feb06): I saw it about a month ago in London and thought it was FANTASTIC! I thought the story was great and the songs amazing! I'm planning to go again soon! I hope it comes out on DVD!
USER (23Sep04): We come from Sydney and flew to melbourne for 3 days and saw it once, and had to see it again the next night, it moved us. Soooo Amazing its just about to start here in Sydney and cant wait,if you only go to one show, make sure its this one!!
USER (14Sep04): i saw the show 3 times in london and i'm going for the 4times in december
USER (04Aug04): I saw it in the beginning of June and it was amzaing. My friends and I were speechless afterwards. MiG was outstanding, my friends and fell in love with his voice. This show is fantastic,and I tell everyone that they have to experience it for themselves. I cant wait to see the American verson in Las Vegas to see how it compares, hopefully it will be just as great. I believe that this show will take the world by storm and hopefully make it to Broadway, to become the next Rent.
USER (27Jul04): brilliant- saw australian version and their voices were very excellent! Totally recomend it to anyone!
USER (05Jul04): I'm 14, I saw the Australian verson, and I love queen. I thought it was the best musical I have ever seen, and I have seen alot. It was halarious and all the jokes I could understand, my 10 year old sister thought it to be the best thing shes ever seen. The singing was amazing, the acting was great and the jokes were so on que! I recommend it to anyone who music and comedy, or more importantly queen.
Excite (01Nov03): I have seen it 3 times and it is not nearly enough!!!I love the show and think that there is some amazing talent within the cast and I truly believe that I will marry Tony!X

Supanet (16Dec02): brilliant show anyone who says its crap probably hasn't seen it
USER: UK Theatre Web (20May02): Excellent - if you like Queen, you'll love it - good fun from beginning to end. We were also lucky to see Bryan May!
USER: Handbag (15May02): The music is, without question, fantastic. Why in heaven's name "Don't Stop Me Now" started by the excellent Sharon D Clarke IS actually stopped, I don't know. The script is dire. Ben Elton has shamelessly plundered The Matrix, and his own previous work, to bring us the grab-bag of mixed messages - Blasting Napster, yet professing to bring free music to "the kids"...? Attempting to fit a story around the varied subjects of Queen's songs is definitely no a project to tackle lightly. Elton has shot wide of the mark with his hammy stage school approach, unfortunately.
