COULD NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THE WHOLE SHOW

Sorry, this is probably the worst production I have seen. Saying this is the music of Queen is quite a stretch.

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.

A DISAPPOINTING MESS

Frankly, this show feels like it shouldnt have been made and is a massive bore. The plot is incredibly weak, with every situation being super contrived (even from the basic plot set up) and villians so one dimensional and uninteresting (their entire basis is essentially “we are evil megacorperation whos job is being evil”) that every single scene with them feels like wasted time. So much just doesnt make sense, even from a directing perspective. For example, why are the intensely anti-rock villains constantly singing rock songs and are introduced with guitar riffs? Would having them being associated with music like synths make far more sense? Additionally, what may have been the pull of the show, the Queen music, is so incredibly forced into every situation possible, and shows 0 understanding of the actual songs. The songs literally come out of nowhere with next to no relation to whats happening on stage. The singing is Mostly good, but still not as good as the real songs: Id rather just listen to actual Queen.

AWFUL

We love Queen and thought it would be great because of the music, but it was horrible. Even my 8 year old daughter called out the fact that the plot made no sense, and was a huge waste of money and time. The musicians were awesome but that’s about it. Really disappointing all around. Don’t bother with this one.

TERRIBLE!!!!!

So disappointed! My husband and I are huge Queen fans and assumed this show would be amazing based all of Freddy’s music but the story line was so stupid and boring and ruined what could have been a good show. SAVE YOUR MONEY, DONT GO!! I would not recommend this show to anyone!!!

WELL... HERE'S THE THING

The only thing this lacked more than talent is plot. The one dimensional, highly predictable plot left me wishing I had some tomatoes on hand. Furthermore, the writers were able to hold the audience hostage with nostalgia in a way insulting to those of us who didn't go crazy at the mere mention of 80s songs. The puns would have been bad had they not been used as a crutch to deal with the debilitating plot - or lack thereof - instead they were terrible. The attempts at comedy were frequent and unsuccessful. This horrific excuse for theater is not worth seeing unless you want to pay to bad versions of songs you can listen to for free to feel nostalgic.
