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 to see acting of Royal Shakespeare Company standards because that is clearly not going to happen and you should probably be in Stratford anyway. What you will see is an entertaining and light hearted story in the style of the Flash Gordon movie. Nothing that will tax your brain or make you look deep inside yourself for Freudian answers to life's questions. Accept it for what it is, a musical romp through Queen's (slightly modified) back catalogue and you will enjoy it.
The show has been running for 10 years, it cannot be that bad! Actually it is but that is it's charm. Switch off your brain and just enjoy the music.
