DesireeMoran's review of We Will Rock You

★☆☆☆☆

“Worst Show I've Ever Seen”

Written on: 26/03/2014 by DesireeMoran (1 review written)

Notice how the positive reviews have broken English and don't sound like a real person wrote them? No real person enjoyed this show. I really think someone paid for those reviews. That's a thing that happens now.

"We Will Rock You" the musical's worst offender is the story. It's a juvemille comedy filled with really bad puns. Imagine a musical version of "Dumb & Dumber" filled with dad jokes. The acting is hard to criticize. It came off like an amateur school production, but maybe they're really good actors bringing a terrible script to life in the best way possible.

Freddie Mercury leaves about the hardest shoes to fill in vocalist history. That said, I've heard him honored better at drunken karaoke nights. They actors are largely broadway style singers without the vocal range to sing rock anthems. At best classic Queen songs sound like showtunes. At worst some of the songs get really massacred. Between poorly re-written lyrics and weak vocalists unable to compete with the band it turns into a farce pretty quickly.

In the last 10 minutes of the show a desperate attempt is made to deliver the concert-style rock homage to Queen that you probably expected when you bought the tickets. It falls short. Some of the actors just don't have the vocal chops and no amount of flashing lights can mask that. The show is flawed on a material level. Instead of honoring Queen it leaves you with the feeling of cheap exploitation. The only thing you'll hear at this show is Radio Ga Ga.
