The North American tour of the Queen musical We Will Rock You plays the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden November 14–17.
Taking center stage in New York City are Trevor Coll as Galileo, Keri Kelly as Scaramouche, Krystle Chance as Killer Queen, Alysse Ernewein as Oz, Brian Christensen as Brit, Kyle Gruninger as Khashoggi, and Kevin Doe as Buddy. Also new to the production is music director Stuart Morley.
Based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton, the musical follows two revolutionaries, Galileo and Scaramouche, on a quest to save rock 'n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no musical instruments and rock has died. They join a small group of societal outcasts, the Bohemians, as they fight to take back the iPlanet from the all-powerful Globalsoft, led by the Killer Queen.
The original West End production featured music supervision from Brian May and Roger Taylor, and Elton fashioned the futuristic story around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs, including “We Are the Champions,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “I Want To Break Free,” “Somebody To Love,” “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Under Pressure,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” and “We Will Rock You.”
