The original production of We Will Rock You that opened in London featured Tony Vincent playing
the lead role of Galileo, Hannah Jane Fox as Scaramouche, Sharon D. Clarke as Killer Queen, Nigel Planer as Pop, Nigel Clauzel
as Brit, and Kerry Ellis as Meat. For her performance, Clarke received a nomination for "Best Performance in a Supporting
Role in a Musical or Entertainment" at the 2003 Olivier Awards.
We Will Rock You, a musical based upon
the songs of Queen, features a book by Ben Elton. The musical tells the story of a troupe of Bohemians who have made it their
goal to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in the distant future, to prevent a world where all
of its inhabitants dress, think, and do the same. In that feared distant future, musical instruments and composers are prohibited,
and rock music is nearly nonexistent.
With direction by Christopher Renshaw and choreography by Arlene Phillips, the
original West End production made its opening at the Dominion Theatre on May 14, 2002, starring Tony Vincent, Hannah Jane
Fox, Sharon D. Clarke, and Kerry Ellis in the show's core roles. Despite an initially negative critical reception, the show
has turned into a fan favorite over the years.
At the 2011 Laurence Olivier Awards, the musical received the Audience
Award for Most Popular Show. We Will Rock You eventually became the longest-running musical at the Dominion Theatre, and celebrated
its 10th anniversary on May 14, 2012. Many productions all across the globe have been launched since the original one made
its debut, and We Will Rock You has played in five continents.
A US tour had originally been scheduled for 2004, but
because of the creative team's scheduling conflicts, the tour had to be replaced with a show held at the Paris Las Vegas hotel
and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, which would be the show's first North American venue. That production began previewing on
August 4 and made its official opening on September 8. The Vegas production trimmed the length of the musical, making it a
single-act show. The show came to a close on November 27, 2005.
A Russian production made its official opening at the
Estrada Theatre in Moscow on October 17, 2004. The show's spoken lines and all songs but three were translated into Russian.
That production ended only four months after it opened, mostly because of creative differences between the show's producers,
in spite of countless protests from fans to keep the show going.
Since 2006, the show has sparked several amateur productions
in the UK, and the funds from the ticket sales for these shows went to the Mercury Phoenix Trust. This license is also valid
for school performances, with the shows being titled "Schools Will Rock You".
In 2007, a non-equity production of We
Will Rock You took place at the Jedlicka Performing Art Centre in Chicago beginning in April. The show was the first North
American production since the Las Vegas show came to a close.
A production of "We Will Rock You" is expected to open
in Mexico City in February 2014.
