BWW Interview: Jeff Parry, Producer of WE WILL ROCK YOU at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place Des Arts BWW Interview: Jeff Parry, Producer of WE WILL ROCK YOU at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place Des Arts
by Noelle Hannibal - Feb 3, 2020

Jeff Parry was raised in Ottawa, ON. His love of music began when he was 9 years old when he fell in love with The Beatles. He has always had a passion for. music, so after University, he moved out west to try to raise money to open a record store in Ottawa. He wound up staying in Alberta and rather than open a record store, in 1978, he started a concert promotion business, producing tribute shows. That evolved into becoming an agent and ultimately, a theatrical producer. I had the chance to speak with Parry on the eve of the Montreal run of the award winning musical, WE WILL ROCK YOU, a jukebox musical based on the songs of British rock band Queen with a book by Ben Elton, which lands in Montreal on February 10.
