The Queen & Ben Elton's We Will Rock You
Queen and Ben Elton have collaborated to produce, at a cost of £7.5 million, We Will Rock You. It opened at London's Dominion Theatre in May 2002 and is still going strong, not only this original London production, but now in theatres globally.
Scale and spectacle are the order of the day, as you would expect from the band whose live performances made rock legend.In the future, on a place once called Earth, globalisation is complete. Everyone watches the same movies, wears the same clothes, and thinks the same thoughts. All musical instruments are banned. But resistance is growing. A hero is needed. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man, and can he help them break free...?
The show is directed by Christopher Renshaw with choreography by Arlene Phillips.
