Is We Will Rock You at the dominion theatre london any good? I am going to go see it for my birthday and i want to know if it is really brilliant or just average. Seeing as its got Queen songs its going to be good but what is the story. Please reply if youve seen it or if you know someone who has.
Thank you XxXxX
Yes, I loved it. Went a few months ago when I was in London. My dad hates Queen, but he agreed to go. He LOVED it. All the performances of the songs are excellent. Some of the lyrics have been changed, though, to fit in to the story.
It is set hundreds of years in the future, where pop music is banned, and all music is completely computer generated. There is a small group of rebels, the Bohemians, who try to revive real music. Queen do not really come into the story much, although they do a bit towards the end. The visual part is excellent, with about 8 huge screens. The female lead, Scaramouche, is hilarious.
I loved every minute of it, except right at the end when people in the audience spoiled Bohemian Rhapsody by singing too loudly and getting the words wrong. Hopefully that won't happen when you go. Enjoy the show and Happy Birthday!
Yes. Bloody good. I came over from New Zealand last year to see it specially. I would come back again, but finances just don't allow. Hope this helps!!

I thought it was amasing! I've seen it twice and it got better the second time i saw it!
If you liek the humour in black adder and Mr bean and the young ones then you'll like it 'coz ben elton wrote the actuall story with the help of brian and roger for characters names and little details that real queen fans would notice. eg: lines from songs in the script etc
I saw it for my 16th Birtday and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! So I say go for it! 'QUEEN' yourself out!
Not worth the money. Here's what you do - down the street at the Tottenham Court Road tube station, you'll find during the evening hours of some days an old vagrant named Irish Pete. Now, bring some aerosol room freshener - more on that in a sec. Tell Pete that you'd like one ticket to We Will Rock You. It'll cost you 3 quid, but believe me, the show is worth it. Pete sleeps behind the Dominion Theatre and has heard the show inside so often that he knows it inside out. He's also usually so smashed, he can perform every part, including some spiffy dance numbers he's worked up in past months. So there you go - slip Pete 3 quid (or a bottle of cooking wine), give him a good spray and sit back and enjoy the show!
