2003 - We will rock you (Musical)

10.07.2003 Dominion Theatre / London
The Queen Musical:

1964 – Beatles # 1 worldwide
1975 – Queen releases “Bohemian Rhapsody”
2046 – All instruments banned

Thought control is everything in the future. Uniform clothing, one station rules the world: “Globalsoft”.

Non conformists are hunted and prosecuted.

That’s the scenario of the musical. Music is forbidden but there are rebels hiding in the shadows who call themselves after the musicians they adored.

Not much is left from the art form MUSIC.

Music is controlled and only programmed but rumour has it that the chosen one will come to end this lethargy and to bring back the instruments.

We Will Rock You is full of dance scenes, an expensive set and brilliant singers.

Humour is a big part of the musical and the stage looks formidable in every single scene. Scaramouche and her friend Casanova Galileo and their friends “Prince”, “Bob the builder” and “Britney Spears”, a HE, are fighting a common enemy: FAT BOTTOM GIRL, better known as the KILLER QUEEN.

The music of Queen is performed live by a superb band.

The musical manages to keep the audience interested and almost every Queen classic gets played. From “Who wants to live forever” to “Under Pressure”, “Crazy little thing called love”, “Radio GaGa”, “I want to break free” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

The show is breathtaking.
