We Will Rock You Dallas Tickets

"We Will Rock You" Lives Up to its Name

In a glorious celebration of the music of Queen, "We Will Rock You" offers a funky fantasy plot, incredible earth-pounding dance routines and, best of all, an entire score featuring the songs of Queen and the great Freddie Mercury. As "We Will Rock You" continues its national tour, it's sure to turn on a whole new generation of fans to the music of Queen. For audiences everywhere, "We Will Rock You" serves as a reminder that great music deserves to survive — not only through global upheavals, but also through centuries to come.

Plot

The time is the distant future 300 years from now, in a grim new world called iPlanet (formerly Earth), where composers are banished, musical instruments are forbidden and rock doesn't exist. Enter the Bohemians, students who are determined to overthrow the world and return it to a time when freedom of thought and expression was encouraged. Led by Galileo, they find ways to construct their own instruments. By doing so, however, they defy the Killer Queen, who rules the Globalsoft Corporation that runs the planet.

We follow these rebels on their journey — punctuated by classic Queen songs — as they find their destiny, using the secret text found in the lyrics of "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a guide. Living at the Heartbreak Hotel, they plan their battle strategy and discover the joy of music. The end, however, brings a cataclysmic showdown, where they attempt to overthrow Globalsoft and the Killer Queen so that their music can be heard by everyone in the new world.

Schedule

Currently on a national tour, "We Will Rock You" is scheduled for appearances in Dallas and more throughout 2014, where audiences will be able to enjoy both evening and matinee performances. If you're interested in We Will Rock You Dallas tickets, keep an eye out for great seats near you!

Trivia

The show's producers originally envisioned a jukebox-type musical celebrating not only Queen's songs, but the life of Freddie Mercury. This idea, however, was axed when members of Queen brought in writer Ben Elton to discuss the project. Ultimately, Elton took over the writing of the book.

"We Will Rock You" has been performed in five continents, and is the longest-running musical in the history of London's Dominion Theatre, where it has been playing since 2002. In the London production, original Queen guitarist Brian May occasionally joins in for cameo appearances onstage, to the huge delight of the audience.

Cast

In the national tour of "We Will Rock You," the challenging role of Galileo is played by Brian Justin Crum, a well-known Broadway actor who has also scored triumphs in "Next to Normal," "Grease" and "Wicked." Actor P. J. Griffith, who appears as Khashoggi, was recently seen on Broadway in the new musical version of "Giant." The role of the Killer Queen is played by Jacqueline Arnold, who also scored a hit in the Broadway production of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert."

Original Author

The original book for "We Will Rock You" was written by Ben Elton, a British comedian, author, director and playwright best known for writing a number of mega-hit TV shows, including "The Young Ones" and "Blackadder." Elton also wrote the book for Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" sequel, "Love Never Dies."

Producer

The original London production of "We Will Rock You" was directed by Christopher Renshaw, who is perhaps best known for his many opera productions staged at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. His theater credits include Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Café Puccini," as well as the Tony-winning Broadway revival of "The King and I."
