“Terrible that's the right rating”

Written on: 12/04/2012

Actors rather were shouting than singing. Sound quality was poor as well. In most of dialogs actors spoke with unnecessary accents. I payed maximum fare sitting in the center of row A of circus and I had to bend forward all the time to see the show. It was 100% waste of money and time… Read Full Review

“An utterly wretched experience”

Written on: 10/03/2012

I've seen a few West End shows and, even though I'm not a huge musicals fan, they are generally spectacular enough to be entertaining. Not this time. We Will Rock You felt cheap. On a par with an am dram performance in the village hall. The story line was a disgrace. The jokes were archaic. The acting, unnecessary accents and singing were all diabolical. The dialogue was embarrassing. Ben Elton should be ashamed of himself, and god only knows how Brain May can sleep at night. I wasn't… Read Full Review

well clearly you're opinion is the opinion of the minority, in its 11th year and as successful as it is...? clearly not many people agree with you.

“We will Rock You. Shakespeare it isn't........but”

Written on: 04/03/2012 by labeline (4 reviews written)

Having read the negative reviews on this site I can see what they mean. The story line is absolute dross, the acting is wooden and the music and lyrics have been mucked around with but I think that those who criticise it have missed the point. I didn't know what to expect so had no pre-conceptions. I can fully understand that if you went to the show expecting a group of Queen clones to knock out your favourite hits you would be disappointed. I also understand your angst if you were expecting… Read Full Review

“Terrible, terrible.... yes, TERRIBLE!”

Written on: 03/03/2012 by mdaems (1 review written)

I gave it 1 star because that's the minimum I could give. The only reason why I stayed in, not walking out after half an hour is because I thought my girlfriend was having a better time but afterwards, she told me she didn't enjoyed it too much either. Actors couldn't sing, no emotional connection what so ever and whatever that was left got crushed by the loudness of the music, which in total killed every note, every song as well. Somewhere in second half, a character Pop came in and he was the… Read Full Review

“WE WILL HOODWINK YOU”

Written on: 27/02/2012 by Thumbelinabelle (1 review written)

So angry that I wasted £100 for 2 tix for this show. I didn't bother to research reviews as the name and logo leads you to think it's entirely different e.g. a tribute style show. Instead, the setting is iPlanet. The time is the future, or now.. it's not very clear. The lead male's name is Gallileo Figaro and the lead female Scaramouche. Gallileo has a cheesy American accent... I have been going to shows for the last 15 years and never have I seen something so atrocious. Even though the… Read Full Review

“Review of First Half Hour - HAD TO LEAVE!!!”

Written on: 04/01/2012

Wish I had seen these reviews before wasting £85 on 2 tickets for my husband's christmas present. We have been theatre goers (especially musicals) for the past 20 years and have NEVER felt the need to walk out of a show before, but we honestly could not take any more TORTURE ! Could not understand what was going on, eventually didn't care, jokes were bad, script was awful, overacting was plentiful - have to admit though that singing was okay (pretty impossible to sing a Queen song badly!)… Read Full Review

omg i had the same experience last night and am SO angry that I wasted £100 for 2 tix on that show. completely hoodwinked! didn't even bother to research reviews as the name and logo leads you to think it's entirely different. i have been going to shows for the last 15 years and never have I seen something so atrocious. even tho the singers were pretty good and obviously the songs epic, the insane, nonsensical, cheesy storyline and treatment with cringe one liners and the fact it was set in a mad max style dystopian future (fine in the 80/90s sure, but so jaded now), yet illogically referring to current technology and artists amongst a myriad of other ridiculousness made it unbearable. my sister wouldn't let me leave even though we both wanted to.

“We Will Rob You”

Written on: 06/12/2011

When the inhouse lights dimmed and the stage show lights started l was prepared to be whisked off into the world of Queen and escapism! lf only l could have been whisked off to land of sleep! l have seen better High school productions! Ropey dancing, cringy jokes, weak and awful singing and a ridiculous story line! l can't believe that Brian May actually got on stage with these alleged actors and singers. lf l was him l would have legged it out the back door but, then, it has been going for… Read Full Review

“had more entertaining maths lessons”

Written on: 23/11/2011

terrible terrible terrible. Wanted to cause myself pain as it would have been something else to think about. I love musicals, i love glee, i love high school musical, i adore les mis and i like queen..... i am their target audience. The accents, despite coming and going, were incredibly grating and false. I am nineteen, love partying, clubbing etc. and i'm partially deaf... putting my fingers in my ears left me with a comfortable volume. The acting was wooden and unconvincing, the 'story' was… Read Full Review

“Awful!”

Written on: 19/11/2011

I went in expecting to have a fantastic night and I was disappointed! The leads were unconvincing. Galileo was a wimp and not that great a singer (although he thought he was). Scaramouche had the most annoying voice ever and her "jokes" were so obvious, tired and old. The woman playing Meat was the best singer by far, but had a bit part. The production was quite varied and fun, and I liked the old dude, but all in all it was mega cheesy and not worth the ticket price. I can't believe that… Read Full Review

“Oh My God......”

Written on: 19/11/2011

How the hell has this been going for 10 years? I was speechless really. As others have said, Glee does Queen sums the music side up. However, it's not rocket science - people seeing this dross will generally like Queens music, which is Rock music (albeit soft / pop rock). Therefore, to dpo the songs justice, it should be sung like Rock - not by a load of untalented shrill 'high school kids'. Just awful. As bad as the music was, it was the best part of the show, because the 'story' was… Read Full Review

“Time i will never get back”

Written on: 28/10/2011 by andylucas (1 review written)

I went with my family. Utter dross. I am not Queen's biggest fan but could not understand how the songs related to the weak story. Ben Elton should hang his head in shame. Putting his name to this rubbish? How this "show" has managed to keep going for 10 years is beyond me.I can think of nothing positive to say. I counted the minutes thinking surely it will improve? Reminded me of the "great Rock and Roll Swindle" ever feel you are being had? Do yourself a favour a dont go. Rant over now, deep… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 28/10/2011

Wish thatihad found these reviews before I forked out £30 for a ticket. The singing was terrible. The plot was confusing. Would rather see karaoke at the local pub. Jokes. Made me cringe, especially as the audience was full of kids. Trove lights for first minute were unnecessary and blinding. Left after 30 min and gave my ticket to a homeless guy who was waiting outside... Atleast he might have been able to enjoy the bathrooms and a warm dry place for a few hours.M do not wate your money… Read Full Review

“Fabulous night out well worth seeing ”

Written on: 14/10/2011 by leracing (2 reviews written)

Night 3 performance was a fabulous night out! A great cast who put their all in to every scene. The lead male - Noel Sullivan (ex Hear'Say) is very strong in his part as Galileo, along with leading lady Amanda Coutts who played Scaramouche - a stunning voice with a good range. The quick humour of Ian Reddington added the fun to this excellence song & dance extravaganza. The band playing the music as note perfect as Queen themselves. The wonderful drumming provided by Rufus Taylor (son of Roger… Read Full Review

“Fantastic singing and enthusiasm”

Written on: 10/09/2011

I was so worried after ready the negative reviews. My husband and I went to the Liverpool emoire last night and although the story was a bit cheesy, you had to accept it for what it was. The singing was FANTASTIC and the dancers put their all into the performance. The audience were all standing at the end, singing and joining in . The cast received a fantastic reaction from them. If you are going to see the show I'm sure you will enjoy it, just don't expect too much from the story. Nearly… Read Full Review

“It's a musical”

Written on: 05/09/2011

Sept. '11. A very full Dominion theatre. This is a slightly sanitised version of Queens hits, it is a play with music, and a little comedy. You will not see a band on the stage but a group of dancers who all sing, the lead roles being taken by several singers, they all play their part well and appear to enjoy what they do. There is very little attempt to interact with the audience until the final 15 mins of the show, when hand clapping is encouraged. It was apparent that some in the audience… Read Full Review

“Awful”

Written on: 01/09/2011 by jjulaa (5 reviews written)

Where do I start! Although I would hate to hurt the feelings of the performers in this musical, I have to say it really was awful almost to the point of being unbearable. I went with a large group of people all of whom were equally dissatisfied with the lack of a storyline that made any sense or was related in any way to the songs. It was very very random. There were parts that were clearly supposed to be funny, but unfortunately nobody laughed and very few people clapped at the end of the… Read Full Review

“Very very Disappointing!!”

Written on: 31/08/2011

I went too see this show this week-end and have being looking forward too seeing it for quite some time. It was the worst show I have every gone too see. Poor poor acting, singing was ok only. What I mean by this is if you are a Queen fan, which I am, the singing was no where near the quality you would expect from a show called… Read Full Review
