Hi there people!
I was very fortunate enough to go and see the 'We Will Rock You' musical for the first time last Thursday, September, 8th, 2005, the evening performance. My girlfriend surprised me for my 25th birthday. :D
I have been a huge Queen fan since 1984 and I have always wanted to go and see the show.
After watching the show, I can honestly say that it blew me away. The story, the effects, the humour, the cast and obviously the music. The best thing about it for me though, was the female who played Scaramouche, who is Hannah Jane Fox. I must admit, that I have never heard of her before but her voice was truly amazing (so good that I will be looking out for future albums of her)!!! She was also very funny and the way she delivered her lines was excellent.
The highlight for me was when she sang "Somebody To Love" and she hit the high note at the end. My whole body was covered in goosebumps and it sent a shiver down my spine. I actually became quite choked up. How long has Hannah Jane Fox been part of the musical? It appears she is leaving at the end of October, so will she back and who will be taking her place?
When I got home, I played the CD of the show, which my girlfriend also surprised me with and went straight to 'Somebody To Love'. It was good but I was disappointed. It was nowhere near as good as the version I had just witnessed at the Dominion Theatre and no high note at the end.
The things I would like to know, is that I realise the cast change all the time but is Hannah Jane Fox on the CD as Scaramouche? Also, does Hannah Jane Fox always hit the high note in 'Somebody To Love'? The crowd were excellent as well and I would love to know if anybody else was there on Thursday, September, 8th, 2005 and tell me what they thought and if it was/is as usually good as that or was it just an excellent performance on the night?
I know this is not a 'We Will Rock You' forum but it is Queen related and I would love to know from the people who have been before and if you were there last Thursday, then happy days!!!
I hope I hear from you all soon... Peace out guys and gals!!! 8)
