West End star Brenda Edwards is to join hit musical We Will Rock You for a limited season.
Brenda Edwards will star as Killer Queen in the show, from Monday 21 June at the Dominion Theatre in London. The former X-Factor finalist will join the cast for a limited ten week season before she embarks on a UK and international tour.
Show co-creator Brian May said: “Brenda is irrepressible, scary, funny, and a killer singer. The lot! She delighted audiences on the WWRY tour of Britain last year. I have no doubt that she will Rock the Dominion.”
Other cast in the long-running show include Garry Lake, Alex Bourne, Peter Murphy, Sabrina Aloueche, Ian Carlyle and Louise Bowden. Brenda Edwards’ previous roles include Mama Morton in Chicago The Musical and Pearl Pastor in Carmen Jones at the Royal Festival Hall.
The musical, which features the songs of Queen and a book and lyrics by Ben Elton, is in its ninth year at the Dominion Theatre and has been seen by more than four million people.
