What is We Will Rock You about?

Set 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. A safe, happy Ga Ga world.

The Company Computers generate the music and the kids download it. 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…?

Or that much of what we thought was science fiction in the script back then has turned into science fact! I guess Queen were always ahead of the game! I've directed this show all over the world and I can't wait to bring it home to the UK with a brand new production and a fabulous cast of young Bohemians, most of whom were rocking in their cradles when this adventure first began."

We Will Rock You to close at Dominion Theatre
The Queen musical We Will Rock You is to end its run at the Dominion Theatre in London. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] Brenda Edwards in We Will Rock You[/caption] Written by Ben Elton with songs by Queen, the show will end on 31 May 2014 after 4,600 performances at the Dominion Theatre. The rock musical has played for 12 years in the West End, and is the longest-running rock musical in London theatre history and the longest runner at the Dominion Theatre by nine years. The show opened 14 May 2002 and has become the 10th longest running West End musical ever. The co-creators of the show, Ben Elton, Brian May and Roger Taylor, issued a joint statement saying: "We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we’ve had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002. And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations.” The show has rocked over 6 and a half million people in its 12 years in London and been performed in 28 countries worldwide to over 16 million people. General Manager of the Dominion Theatre, David Pearson, said: “It has been a privilege to have hosted We Will Rock You for the past 12 years. To have the show rocking the Dominion and seeing a standing ovation night after night has been quite amazing. We wish the show every success for the future, as we now prepare to accelerate our restoration and refurbishment programme ready to welcome an exciting new production in 2015.” The cast of We Will Rock You on opening night in 2002 BOOK SPECIAL OFFER: Book tickets to We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre DATA The West End's longest-running shows 1.

My Fair Lady Source: Society of London Theatre OPENING NIGHT OF WE WILL ROCK YOU LONDON We Will Rock you opened at the Dominion Theatre on 14 May 2002. It's fair to say that the critics were not kind to the show - with pretty much everyone but Dominic Mohan in the Sun damning it. Reviews round-up by The Telegraph (16 May 2002) "It's a pathetic, adolescent piece of work . . . What's startling here, beyond the cliche-ridden dialogue and the embarrassing, feebleness of Elton's jokes, is the sheer incompetence of the staging . . . the sheer laziness of Elton's script is downright insulting." Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph "PANTOMIME has arrived a little early in the West End in the shape of this shallow, stupid and totally vacuous new musical . . . As an excuse for a musical, this is a disastrous runner-up to Mamma Mia!" Michael Coveney, Daily Mail "FREDDIE would have bunked off halfway through to the Adelphi theatre, where the 40-year-old Chicago manages twice the balls and wit." Caitlin Moran, The Times "THE show is so awful, it's almost entertaining . . . Elton's unfunny dialogue and song cues rapidly mash you into a cow-like trance. Hardcore fans at the front rocked to it. The rest of you will need ear muffs and a good book." Robert Gore-Langton, the Daily Express "BEN Elton, the brains behind the book, claims to be a rock fan, but he has done Queen a disservice with such a trite and tacky storyline." Fiona Sturges, The Independent "THE much-trumpeted Queen musical has arrived, and it would be hard to imagine a less appropriate vehicle for the band's music . . . You will find nothing bohemian, and precious little that's rhapsodic here." Brian Logan, The Guardian "BEN Elton should be shot for his risible story. Best moment of the evening was the fabulous rendition of It's a Kind of Magic by Clarke and Hanson . . . But as for most of the rest: it was a kind of tragic." Kevin O'Sullivan, Mirror "Queen's musical is kind of magic . . . what an evening - magnifico." Dominic Mohan, the Sun Source: Telegraph Photos of the First Night http://storify.com/westendtheatre/we-will-rock-you-photos-opening-night-14-may-2002  
Alex Gaumond Joins We Will Rock You
OMG! Alex Gaumond to star in We Will Rock You. And Mazz Murray returns to say farewell to Killer Queen role. Nominated as Best Actor in a Musical in both the Oliver Awards and Whatsonstage.com Awards for his performance as Emmett in the original London cast of Legally Blonde, actor, singer Alex Gaumond is to take over the leading role of Galileo in the Queen & Ben Elton hit West End musical, We Will Rock You. The announcement was made today by show producers Phil McIntyre Entertainment, Tribeca and Queen Theatrical Productions. Gaumond begins rehearsals with the WWRY cast August 1st to take on the role of Galileo full time at London’s Dominion from August 8th. Playing Legally Blonde’s shy and charming fellow law student Emmett opposite first Sheridan Smith and then Susan McFadden in the role of Elle, Gaumond proved hugely popular with audiences as well as receiving his two Best Actor nominations. Gaumond ended his eighteen month stay with the production June 18th. Joining We Will Rock You, Gaumond takes over from WWRY’s current Galileo, Ricardo Afonso, who moves to join the cast of the stage version of Irving Berlin’s Top Hat, due to open in August. Trading those unflattering Harvard corduroys for jeans and t’s, Gaumond is set to enter the leather clad, guitar-thrashing futurist world of Queen and Ben Elton in which originality and individualism are outlawed and only one man, Galileo, can fulfil a prophecy that will bring about the overthrow of the mighty Killer Queen and enable the return of rock 'n roll. It is a return to familiar territory for Gaumond - the dystopian world of Ga Ga girls, Bohemian rebels and Marks & Spencer smoothies; the Canadian actor/singer/songwriter, resident and working in the UK since 2002, gained his first major leading role when he was cast as Galileo in the 2009 UK touring production of We Will Rock You. Gaumond triumphed in the show for seven months before joining Legally Blonde. Gaumond is presently contracted to play Galileo in the WWRY London Dominion production until end of January 2012. The show’s co-creator Brian May welcomed Gaumond saying: “Alex is a superb actor, and his interpretation of Galileo on tour in the UK was a huge hit with audiences. We look forward to a new triumph in the Dominion, in WWRY’s 10th year.” We Will Rock You’s producers today also announced that actress/singer Mazz Murray, the show’s longest serving Killer Queen until her departure on maternity leave last year, is to make a return to the show for a special two week farewell season. Mazz who played Killer Queen between May 2004 – June 2010, will return to say goodbye to her nemesis role August 8 -20, nicely coinciding with Alex Gaumond’s opening in the show. We Will Rock You’s current Killer Queen, Brenda Edwards, is on break during this period, returning to the show immediately after. We Will Rock You is into the start of its tenth year at the Dominion Theatre where it holds the record for longest-ever running show. The touring production continues to break box office records throughout the UK. September 5 will see a special performance of We Will Rock You at the Dominion to mark the 65th birthday of former Queen front man Freddie Mercury whose statue towers above the theatre entrance. Proceeds of this special performance will be directed through the Freddie For A Day campaign to The Mercury Phoenix Trust, the charity set up in Freddie’s name to fight HIV AIDS worldwide.

We Will Rock You Celebrates 9th Anniversary: Storms Towards A Decade In The West End
Special (Belated) Celebration Performance Tuesday May 31. Victorious at the recent Olivier Awards, taking the vote for the nation’s most popular musical - the BBC Radio2 Audience award – Queen and Ben Elton’s We Will Rock You this weekend reaches the ninth anniversary of its West End opening. The show opened at The Dominion on May 14, 2002, and has continued to pack houses since. Its triumph at the Oliviers saw the show beating a shortlist including Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys and Les Miserables in the only category decided entirely by members of the public. But celebrations marking the show’s move into its decade year are having to be delayed two weeks – while show co-creator Brian May completes his Anthems tour of the United Kingdom with singer Kerry Ellis. Ellis created a starring role in the original cast of We Will Rock You, nine years ago, and May has worked with her since then, producing and writing her debut Anthems album. Instead, May will roll into town Monday May 31 to join fellow Queen band member Roger Taylor on stage at the Dominion for a belated ninth anniversary celebration. Already warmed up from his tour, May is promising to tune up for a special guest appearance on stage that night. May and Taylor and co-creator Ben Elton have further reason to celebrate. Not only is the re-release of “Keep Yourself Alive” currently sitting at number one in the physical music charts, but the recent Theatreland records listing of the top ten longest running West End shows (published by officiallondontheatre.co.uk ) places We Will Rock You at No.9. In a list which is headed by The Mousetrap (58 years), Les Miserables (25 years) and Phantom of the Opera (24 years), We Will Rock You is the only show from the year in which it opened which continues to run in the West End – and in the same theatre that it was born. Entering its tenth year this weekend, May 14, We Will Rock You is presently booking through to October 22. The current Dominion cast of We Will Rock You includes former Coronation Street star Kevin Kennedy in the role of Pop, X Factor finalist Brenda Edwards as the Killer Queen and Ricardo Afonso and Sarah French in the roles of the rock rebels set to change the world, Galileo and Scaramouche. In addition to various productions on foreign soil, a further British production of the show is now in its second record-breaking year touring the UK. WWRY is a Phil McIntyre, Tribeca Theatrical Productions and Queen Theatrical Productions presentation. Book and direction by Ben Elton. Music by Queen. Music Supervision by Brian May and Roger Taylor. Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road, London, W.1. Presently booking until October 22, 2011.
