If you’re a fan of Queen, then you’ll definitely want to check out We Will Rock You, the musical based on their music. Here’s a quick review of the show.


We Will Rock You is a musical based on the songs of British rock band Queen. The show tells the story of a group of Bohemians who fight against an oppressive regime that controls all aspects of music.

The musical features hits such as “We Are the Champions”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Somebody to Love”, and “Another One Bites the Dust”. It also includes a number of Queen’s more obscure songs, such as “Killer Queen”, “Spread Your Wings”, and “Get Down, Make Love”.

The production has been staged in a number of different countries, and has been both praised and panned by critics. However, it has proved to be extremely popular with audiences, and has even spawned a number of spin-offs, including a reality TV show and a video game.

The Plot

The show is set in the year 2030, when a globalized society has eliminated all forms of individuality, except for music. A group of Bohemians who still believe in rock and individualism plot to overthrow the Globalsoft Corporation, which controls the world. The story follows their journey as they discover themselves and their purpose in life.

The Characters

We Will Rock You is a musical that tells the story of a group of rebels who fight against an evil music corporation. The characters in the show are very likable and relatable. The acting is very good, and the musical numbers are very catchy.

The Music

The music in We Will Rock You is nothing short of spectacular. The entire cast delivers powerhouse performances of some of Queen’s most iconic songs, including “We Will Rock You,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Somebody to Love,” and more. The live band is also phenomenal, and really brings the Queen sound to life. This is a musical that any fan of Queen or good music in general will absolutely love.

The Set

The set for We Will Rock You is very simple compared to other musicals, but it is effective in establishing the different locales. The majority of the stage is taken up by a giant screen that displays images and videos relevant to the action. This is particularly effective during the opening number, as it helps to set the scene and establish the time period. There are also a few moveable pieces, such as a car and a motorcycle, that are used to create different locations.

While the set is not particularly elaborate, it does its job well and allows for a smooth transition between scenes.

The Costumes

The costumes were very well done and appropriate for the era. The Queen songs sounded great. The set design was very minimalistic, but it worked well for the production.

The Lighting

The lighting for We Will Rock You was incredible. Every color imaginable was used and it set such a mood for the music. I felt like I was at a rock concert instead of a musical.

The Sound

The Queen musical “We Will Rock You” is, first and foremost, a musical tribute to the band’s music. The show hits all the high points of Queen’s canon, from “Somebody to Love” to “Under Pressure” to, of course, the anthemic title track.

The sound design by Andrew Offenbach is impeccable. The live band — blood-pumping rock drums, searing electric guitars, soaring vocals — is amped up to arena levels, making this one of the loudest musicals ever staged. It’s an assault on the senses in the best way possible.

The Overall Production

We Will Rock You is a musical by Ben Elton and Queen, based on the rock band’s hits. It tells the story of a group of rebels who fight back against the Globalsoft company, which has outlawed rock music.

The musical features some of Queen’s most popular songs, including “We Are the Champions”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Somebody to Love”, and “We Will Rock You”. The production is high energy, with plenty of pyrotechnics and special effects. The cast is talented and brings the characters to life.

The overall production is very well done and true to the spirit of Queen’s music. If you are a fan of the band, or simply enjoy a good rock musical, We Will Rock You is definitely worth seeing.


With an amazing set, fantastic costumes and a strong cast, We Will Rock You is a musical not to be missed. It is a feel-good show with a message of staying true to yourself, and while it may not be the most original plot, it isExecuted exceptionally well. If you’re looking for a fun night out at the theater, We Will Rock You is the show for you.
