It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
Amanda Coutts joins the cast as 'Meat'. She previously appeared in the show in 2007 as a Scaramouche and Meat cover, later taking over the role of Meat and regularly playing Scaramouche. She then played the lead role of Scaramouche in the UK touring production, and now returns to the Dominion to reprise the role of Meat. Her other touring and West End shows include Fame, Footloose, and West Side Story.
Rolan Bell joins the show as 'Britney'. As well as his touring work with We Will Rock You, his credits include Ragtime, the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Carmen Jones at The Royal Festival Hall, and the Theatre Royal Stratford East production The Harder They Come.

We Will Rock You continues to feature Oliver Tompsett (Galileo ), Rachael Wooding (Scaramouche ), Kevin Kennedy (Pop), Brenda Edwards (Killer Queen), Alasdair Harvey (Khashoggi).
The show opened at the Dominion theatre 14 May 2002, following previews from 26 April 2002, has been seen by more than 6.4 million people in London and over 14 million worldwide.
We Will Rock You has songs by Queen, book and direction by Ben Elton. Choreographed by Arlene Phillips, designed by Mark Fisher, lighting by Willie Williams.
We Will Rock You does not chronicle the story of the band, Queen, rather it incorporates the songs of the rock group. The time is the future. 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 Gaworld. Unless your a rebel. Unless you want rock. On Planet Mall all musical instruments are banned. The company computers generate the tunes and everyone downloads them. But resistance is growing. Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall instruments still exist......
