The official website for the We Will Rock You musical has announced that the show will make its Broadway debut on November 7, 2018.
The date has been set for the Broadway debut of the musical We Will Rock You. The show, which is based on the music of the rock band Queen, will begin previews on March 8, 2013 at the Marquis Theatre.
The musical We Will Rock You is set in the future where a global supercomputer named “Consumer Product Protection Association” or “CPPA” has forbidden rock music. Anyone found wearing ripped jeans, leather jackets or with long hair faces execution. In a small village outside London, a group of young people rebel against the status quo. They form a band and start playing rock music in secret. The story follows their journey as they discover their true identity, overthrow the CPPA and save rock n’ roll.
The musical covers the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free thinking spirit of rock in a world where computer generated music has brainwashed the masses. The original score was written by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor, with additional contributions from Ben Elton.
The cast of the Tony Award-nominated musical We Will Rock You is set to make its Broadway debut on November 8, at the Winter Garden Theatre. Based on the music of British rock band Queen, the show has been a hit in London’s West End, where it has been running since 2002.
The North American tour of We Will Rock You will begin in Toronto on October 1 and will also play Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., before coming to Broadway. The tour is scheduled to end in May 2014.

The Daily Telegraph’s Charles Spencer gave the show two out of five stars, writing that “the show is as bad as its title suggests”. The Guardian’s Nancy Banks-Smith also gave the show two out of five stars, writing that “the surprises are minimal and the jokes obvious”, but praised Ben Elton for his “fiercely accurate send-up of the music business”. Michael Billington, also of The Guardian, gave the show three out of five stars, praising Bono and The Edge’s score as “surprisingly solid” and calling Elton’s book “a hilarious satire on the cult of celebrity”.
The We Will Rock You musical, based on the songs of British rock band Queen, is set to make its Broadway debut in 2020. The musical has been a hit around the world, playing in over 20 countries since its 2002 debut in London.
