by Tim Carney - Sep 6, 2016

13 years after it opened in Melbourne, Queen and Ben Elton's rock theatrical We Will Rock You once again opened in a revival production that still rocked, albeit pretty limply. Let's get something straight, Queen's catalogue rolls out hit after hit throughout the show but it's script and the integration of these hits still remains problematic 13 years on. I was desperately hoping for some adaptions, some tweaking of the show that would make a meaningful difference to its storytelling. There were changes...Killer Queen's Play the Game has been scrapped for the utterly boring Now I'm Here while You're My Best Friend has also been added, serving no real purpose other than to lengthen an already tedious Act 1. It's so long in fact, and certainly feels it, that some slept while many audience left at interval. (more...)
