Brian May Talks Changes to WE WILL ROCK YOU for US, Says Freddie Would 'Love It'
Talking to USA Today, Queen's Brian May explains that "It's exciting, now that there's a proper venture to the States," May says. "There are quite a lot of changes (to the show), but that's normal to We Will Rock You. It's never been a rubber stamp. Every country it's appeared in, it's been rewritten because the idea is that you feel like you're in the story, and the story is based on the history of rock 'n' roll in the seat that you're sitting. It's a fabulous new version." He also notes that "(Freddie is) very much a part of it and I know that he would love it."
The cast featuresBrian Justin Crum as Galileo, Ruby Lewis as Scaramouche, Jacqueline Arnold as Killer Queen, P.J. Griffith as Kashoggi, Ryan Knowles as Pop, Erica Peckas Oz and Jared Zirilli as Britney. The company just met the press, and BroadwayWorld brings you photos of the preview per formances below!
