WE WILL ROCK YOU to return to the West End
The hit musical based on the iconic music of Queen; WE WILL ROCK YOU is returning to London in June 2023!
The popular stage show first opened in the West End in 2002 at The Dominion Theatre where it played for 12 years and was seen by over 6 million people. When it closed in 2014, the show was the 11th longest-running musical on the West End and is still the longest-running musical to play at The Dominion Theatre.
The Jukebox Musical follows the journey of a group of bohemians in a dystopian future where everyone dresses, acts, and thinks in the same way. It follows them as they try to fight against the power to restore free thought and fashion in a world where even music is forbidden.
The show includes legendary hits such as ‘Don’t stop me now’, ‘Somebody to Love’, ‘Killer Queen’, ‘Another One Bites the dust’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and of course the title song ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’. With a brilliant book by Ben Elton, it has remained a fan favorite amongst theatergoers and will surely rock the house down in the summer.
WE WILL ROCK YOU will open at The London Coliseum for a strictly limited run from 2 June 2023 to 27 August 2023. The cast and creative team are yet to be announced.
