It was with some trepidation that I returned to see a musical at Newcastle Theatre Royal after seeing what I consider the worst musical I’ve ever seen – Les Miserables. Today’s offering was the Queen musical ‘We will rock you.’ Of course I knew all the songs due to their fame. I was immediately hooked when it started with ‘Radio Gaga’ with slightly different lyrics to suit the narrative. As for the story, I thought it was quite relevant to the state of pop music today. I could empathize with the main characters and their plight. I enjoyed the witticisms strewn throughout the performance as the cast went through their parts with obvious enjoyment. The customs were in some cases, extraordinary; the singing, enthusiastic and well sung, but it was the stage set, for me that really caught my attention – constantly changing and inventive. So, from seeing the worst musical, I would consider this the best I’ve seen. Absolutely a treat for the ears and eyes!
