SMASH HIT MUSICAL “WE WILL ROCK YOU” FEATURING QUEEN’S LEGENDARY HITS COMES TO ADRIENNE ARSHT CENTER:
From London’s West End, the hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton, features the greatest hits of the legendary British rock group, Queen. Now in its eleventh year in London, it has been seen by a staggering fifteen million worldwide. This hilarious, multi-award-winning and record-breaking phenomenon presents a fantastic score of Killer Queen tunes. Audiences will not be able to resist singing along to such songs as “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “ We Are the Champions.” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and of course, “We Will Rock You.” It’s the world champion musical rock show.
The story is set exactly 300 years in the future in a vaguely Orwellian world. Earth has been renamed as the “ iPlanet” and is controlled by the Globalsoft Corporation. On the “iPlanet,” mainstream commercial conformity reigns, in which Ga Ga Kids watch the same movies listen to the generated music, wear the same clothes and hold the same thoughts and opinions.
It is the age of mindless manufactured music, where everyone dresses the same, thinks the same, is the same and the hope of breaking free is very unlikely. An alliance of rebel Bohemians, deep below the iPlanet are waiting for a hero to bring back the power of Rock to the people and in Galileo, they may have found the right man unless the terrifying Killer Queen gets to him first or even worse, he’s found somebody to love.
