I've seen the show in London and Vegas and this recent production was nowhere near quality of those shows, so much so that I left during intermission as did many other people (I have only ever left one other show). The production values were lacking (costumes, hair, set). The band was excellent, but overpowered most vocals. Gentleman playing Gallileo was excellent, as were some of the other main characters (Oz). It's been years since I saw it, but it seems some songs were added that did not move storyline ahead (I might be wrong about this). Wish it had lived up to my previous experience. Smart Financial Centre is an excellent place to see show; fairly small venue.

MUSIC TEN, BOOK TWO
Of course, musically, the show is great. Singers are fantastic, especially the encore when the lead guy comes out and does Bo Rap (which I think is not in the show itself). Musicians are stellar; lead guitarist is hand picked by Brian May and will dazzle you with his phenomenal playing. Now...the book... it's..ah...pretty dumb. Silly, is a better word. The plot has nothing to do with Queen, excepting that the "god" they are seeking is none other than Freddie - who's a gold statue with glowing green eyes... Saw the show in DC, and KNEW they'd never dare bring it to NYC. Well, thanks to the movie, they think there's a market. The NY critics are going to obliterate it.

GO SEE A QUEEN COVER BAND INSTEAD!
The plot was terrible!! It is hard to mess up classic Queen songs and yet they managed too. Go see a Queen cover band instead. RIP Freddie.

NOT AS ADVERTISED
Saw this was coming to theater at MSG. Saw Queen songs advertised and it was titled “We Will Rock You”. Awesome! (I thought...). Then I saw it with my husband and parents. Songs are good, storyline is terrible. Boring. Dumb. Confusing at times and extremely cheesy. Could have been a million times better with a good storyline. Not worth the money- go see a good show on Broadway.

WE WILL ROCK YOU
Very cheesy. Expected an amazing show of Queen’s music, but got a stupid, cheesy, cartoonish performance. The singing was good, but the dancing was poor and the storyline ridiculous. The show was very amateurish and targeted to 10 year olds. The audience seemed to love it, but I believe they were loving Queen and not this substandard, childish performance. Very disappointing.
