We Will Rock You

“And, another one bites the dust!”

…Not this time! The musical “We Will Rock You” was absolutely amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and I believe the rest of the audience did as well (judging by the standing ovation and cheering).

The musical’s plot was structured around Queen’s hit “Bohemian Rhapsody,” as Galileo and his chick, Scaramouche, searched for the living rock. It’s set in the future as globalization is taking over and musical instruments are banned. However, there is a group of rebels who are trying to break free of the Boy Bands. Galileo and Scaramouche meet with the rest of the Bohemians in their search to revive rock ‘n roll. Did they find it? I’m not sure…you’ll have to find out for yourself!

But what I do know was the Londoner’s I saw tonight, I liked. As different rock ‘n roll hits such as “I want to break free,” “I want it All,” “We will rock you,” and “We are the Champions” (and many many others) were sung, arms swayed in the air, hands clapped, people sang and “hooray-ed” along with the actors.

If the actors didn’t revive rock ‘n roll, the audience surely did!

I know this is a short blog post, but I just had to tell my readers about my spectacular night! Tomorrow I’m headed to Cambridge! Keep your fingers crossed for warm weather and sunny skies.
