For the sixth part of my musical segment, I am featuring the hit musical “We Will Rock You.” We Will Rock You is a jukebox musical which is based from the songs of “Queen.” The title of the musical is from Queen’s hit single of the same title.
The musical was written by Ben Elton with some collaboration with Queen member’s Brian May and Roger Taylor. We Will Rock You opened on May 2002 in Dominion Theatre and still playing there. A sequel for We Will Rock You has been made and will soon hit the theatres.
The musical plot by the way took place in the distant future where originality and individualism were disregarded. A “Dreamer” appears in the story that will make the return of rock n’ roll possible.
Some of the famous Queen tracks that have been used in the musical are “Radio GaGa”, “I Want To Break Free”. “We Will Rock You”, “We Are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
We Will Rock You have won numerous Theatregoers' Choice Awards, Helpmann Awards, Naledi Theatre Awards and Dora Mavor Moore Awards.
