DISAPPOINTING PRODUCTION BUT ACTORS DID A GOOD JOB
We had seen the show in one of the theatres in Toronto quite a number of years ago and so perhaps we were spoiled by that quality of production. While the set was certainly more sparse and industrial, the actors did a very good job. What was most disappointing was the sound: the “pit” band sounded as if they were playing behind a curtain. I realize they literally are behind a curtain; however, the speakers are hanging above the stage. For some strange reason, they were muffled, treble was lacking, and bass was sporadic. The vocal mics of the two leads was crisp and clear, secondary leads were less clear (sometimes we couldn’t understand what they were saying let alone singing), and the background singers were, again, as if they were behind a curtain. At an event where the focus is specifically about the music, the sound should be amazing... but this production fell far short. We were so disappointed, we left at intermission.

If you liked high school musical you will love this. I did not. The first part was painful. The female singers "screeched". The second part got a bit better. the story line and queen's music .... well lets just say... "WHY!!!!!". They Butchered the music. What a complete disappointment. Overall looking at the audience, no one was on their feet, they asked people to clap but they couldn't draw the audience in!! It was like being at a high school play but so much more expensive. First time I could have left at half time but we spent so much $$ on the tickets we stuck it out... it was painful

APRIL 29TH 2014 TORONTO SHOW
full of flat jokes and lame social commentary. Broadway singers lacking the range to recreate the genius that was Freddie Mercury. I was very disappointed. Oh and Killer Queen is the worst written character I have ever seen.

THE LONDON VERSION WAS LIGHT YEARS BETTER
I saw this show in London in 2003 and it was the best stage show of my life...even better that Mamma Mia on Stage The Seattle version bore no resemblance my London experience. As an aside, I recently went to see Second Hand Lion on stage... the audience waited and waited but the lion (as lovingly seen in the Movie) never showed up...many were disappointed I waited and waited for Queen to show up, today, watching We will Rock you.....and Queen never showed up What I saw was a "Hair" type ensemble with bits of SNL, unending references to old Rock and Roll Songs and a Rocky Horror show type narrator .The songs were loud, rarely good and never reminded one of Freddy and Queen...the choreography was dodgy and the costumes weak I can't prove it but I felt that the show, was pre recorded and actors were mouthing the words This review is honest and cannot hurt the show as tomorrow is the last show date in Seattle Lesson: If you see a great show once...You will not see it repeated

WE WILL ROCK YOU
Complete waste of time and money. It was so bad we left at intermission. Don't waste your hard earned money on this. The story was pathetic. I gave it one star for the vocals. Huge disappointment.

HORRIFIC - NYC MADISON SQUARE GARDEN NOV 2019
The worst show I have ever seen, and it is not even close. I will allow that some of the performers are excellent vocalists, and some of the songs were done well, so I feel badly for the cast. But the entire plot, the dialogue, the acting, the jokes, the choreography, the set reminded me of a play written by 4th graders for 4th graders. People were leaving mid-act, and droves of people left at intermission - including us. Beyond bad. We decided we could save the night by leaving and doing something else.

BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER
The story line was strange. The singers sounded like they were singing karaoke at a bar. Many people in the theater left at intermission. The show was supposed to begin at 7:00pm and did not start until after 7:15. So disappointed about the wasted money I spent.
