Queen musical "We Will Rock You" now booking to 30 April 2005
Queen musical We Will Rock You has announced a new 8 month booking period covering performances from 6 Sep 2004 to 30 April 2005 at Dominion Theatre
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......
