The Queen Musical - We Will Rock You to come to Toronto

The Musical We Will Rock You is a jukebox musical, based on the songs of Queen and named after their hit single of the same name. The musical was written by English comedian and author Ben Elton in collaboration with Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor. The story takes place in a tongue-in-cheek dystopian future where originality and individuality are shunned, and a lone "Dreamer" appears who can fulfil a prophecy that will enable the return of rock 'n roll.

We Will Rock You will be opening April 10 at the Canon Theatre in Toronto. It is currently in previews (since March 14). Previously, the Musical has been open elsewhere most notably London where my sister actually saw it a few years ago.

Did your sister enjoy it?

She did enjoy it, as I recall.

Thanks Erica. Good to know. I've often heard this show disparaged, but even the president of my company enjoys it, and given how long the show's been playing in London, it must strike the right chords with audiences.
