MAY - JUNE 2024

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

On the iPlanet, all the musical instruments are banned as if they are responsible for the new world plague. The company computers instead generate tunes which everybody streams. It is an age of boy bands and of girl bands. Of boy and girl bands. Of girl bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance as hits are scheduled years in advance.

Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality

But resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming data cities, down in the lower depths, below the apocalyptic wastelands live the Bohemians. Rebels, led by the wise activist and music historian Buddy, who believes that there was once a golden age when the kids formed their own bands and wrote their own songs. The Bohemians called that time, the Rhapsody.

Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see

Legend persists that somewhere on the iPlanet, instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep within the living rock. The Bohemian’s need a hero, a chosen one, to find the axe, draw it from the stone and play the mighty riff. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man?

He’s just a poor boy, from a poor family

But the GlobalSoft cops, under the instruction of Commander Khashoggi, are also looking for Galileo and his helper Scaramouche, and if they get them first, they will surely drag them before the Killer Queen and consign them to oblivion across the seven seas of Rhye. Who is Galileo? Where is the hairy one’s lost axe? Where is the place called rock?

Any way the wind blows.


About We Will Rock You The Musical

Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 28 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn).

The musical takes place in a future age on a planet once called Earth, now the Iplanet, controlled by the mighty corporation Globalsoft and headed by the evil Killer Queen and her side kick, Khashoggi. Rock music is unheard, and all musical instruments are banned. The hope of breaking free rests with an unlikely resistance-an alliance of rebel Bohemians. 

Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs including ‘We Are the Champions’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘I Want To Break Free’, ‘Somebody To Love’, ‘Killer Queen’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and of course, ‘We Will Rock You’.

I went to see We Will Rock You with my family. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I had no idea Albany had so many talented people. Amazing singing, dancing and music. Beautiful costumes. Great story with some very funny comedy. My 11-year-old enjoyed it so much she asked if she could come back tomorrow to watch it again. Thank you, I had a great time.
