It's too late to wanna go see it now... it's over and it's been over since 2004. The play opened and had GREAT reviews. I just found out myself and was dissapointed that I couldn't go see it, but I thought some people would find the info. interesting so I put it here... enjoy my fellow queenies!

Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God

Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God is a passionate one-man drama about rock icon Freddie Mercury, lead singer of the legendary rock group Queen. His tragic death of AIDS in 1991 had a tremendous worldwide impact since he was the first rock star to publicly acknowledge his illness. In the play, which was hailed by Billboard as “heartfelt, moving and entertaining,” the late Freddie Mercury seeks redemption before a God unimpressed by his celebrity. In his ultimate struggle to make sense of his grim fate, he realizes that his fame, fortune and talents are no longer enough to sustain him; that beyond the darkness of his fears, shines a light far brighter than the superstar he was on Earth.
