Queen musical "We Will Rock You" now booking to 29 Oct 2005

Queen musical We Will Rock You has been extended by 6 months and is now booking booking to 29 Oct 2005 at the Dominion Theatre.

We Will Rock You has over 700 performances behind it, and a box office gross to date of over £41,000,000.

The success of the original London show has seen spin-off productions open in Australia, Spain, Las Vegas, Moscow, and Germany (December), plus other openings scheduled.

The show, which has songs by Queen and book by Ben Elton, opened to poor notices from the popular press in May 2002, but this did not effect box office receipts as the show continues to play to near packed houses, particularly at the weekends.

It is directed by Christopher Renshaw, choreographed by Arlene Phillips, with designs by Mark Fisher and Willie Williams.

We Will Rock You does not chronicle the story of the band, Queen, rather it incorporates the songs of the rock group in a similar way that Abba songs are used in 'Mamma Mia!'. 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......

Looking for the best seats...
