The smash hit Queen and Ben Elton musical We Will Rock You is returning to the Edinburgh Playhouse, following its award-winning 2009 run.
This production is directed by Ben Elton, with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and Arlene Phillips overseeing the musical staging and choreography.
Writer Ben Elton has fashioned a futuristic comedy around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs delivered in a show that boasts the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances.
“The show is about legend,” says Ben Elton. “We take the legend of Queen and create our own fantastical story of young kids battling the mighty corporations who want to suppress their individuality and their love of music. They need a hero who can help them in their struggle, and we have two: the dreamer Galileo and the sassy rock chick Scaramouche. Guess who ends up winning?”
‘Even those who aren’t particular Queen fans can’t deny the quality of those classic hits performed here with power’
