Good- nothing special. Thank god Tony Vincent doesn't sing anymore- he was CRAP. The second guy was much better. Has seen it twice- Tony V. ruined it for me first time around. Second time was more enjoyable. Band is OK. The story is... you can't take it seriously- if you do, you'll hate the musical. Nothing special but definitelly better night out than Cats or bloody Chitty Chitty Bang bang...

Personnally I felt Tony was very good and the band, well they were fantastic, I have no idea what you mean " they were OK" they rocked, best show in the west end by far, have you heard the other show bands?

I saw it in Las Vegas and really enjoyed it. I think if your a Queen fan you can appreciate more than someone not familiar with thier music.I would see it again as I forgot some of the songs they did. I thought it was put together well and the storyline was good. I remember thinking, I wonder what Freddie would think about it. Personally I think he would have loved it.

I've seen the Russian play and I wish I'd never see it again.

Saw it in London, it was a life changing experience. The greatest play I've ever seen.

I saw it a week ago in London :)
It was great, fucking great. And for me, I've never been to a real Queenconcert, so this is the first and closest to a live-show I have ever been.
The story was kinda fun, and I thought that the play itself was really fun to, Scaramouche was funniest. Good singers (Killer Queen was great!!) good music of course :) good actors, fun story, I loved everything about it.
My fav song in it was Radio GaGa, Killer Queen, I want it all, AOBTD and Headlong.

Good. It was really good.

Erm, it's a musical, not a play. The word "play" conjures up images of first grade children 'acting' for the first time in the school gymnasium, paper props behind them as they nervously recite their lines, waving to their proud parents when they finished...

Yep, loved it. Mazz Murray was ill the night I saw it, so her understudy played KQ, which is my excuse for making my dad take me back to London, so I can see the real thing (not that her replacement, Paula Clarke wasn't excellent). He's not budging at the moment.


This can't end well.

I wish i'd seen it. :( I was in Vegas for Christmas and went to a WWRY store, They had a huge sale! And asked the worker if the musical was still playing, she replied no and added: since the musical is over they have to clear out the store or something like that. lol When i entered the store, my eyes went crazy. I have bought 6 keychains ($4 each!) And some CDs for a friend, that were only $10

Saw it in London. It was fun, but not going to make one ponder the meaning of life. The band was terrific. The audience definitely enjoyed it.

It's a shame the bastards didn't come to New York, the fucking theater capital of the world.

I'm going to see it a little later this year when it opens in SA. Looking forward to seeing it. I've got two of the best seats in the house (lol :( i had to cough up for those) but i'm not sure who I should take with me...someone who does not know much Queen music (though someone with whom I'd still like to go and who could probably appreciate it) or someone who really loves Queen music (tho someone whom I'm not really all that obliged to ask otherwise)?

It is superb! I saw the touring version on its 1st night in Brisbane Australia and got our photos in the paper (I know sad aren't I?). The band and the singers absolutely rocked the place to the ground!! I want to get the time and bucks this year to visit the London show.
