From 'A Night at the Opera' to 'A Day at the Races', Queen's music always had more than a hint of the theatrical about it. The stand-out track from 'A Night at the Opera', the ludicrous and magical recurring global über hit Bohemian Rhapsody, was a mini-rock opera in its own right. The whole Queen back catalogue is a masterclass in lush orchestral arrangement, thumping, stomping glam rock and ensemble pieces from musicians of the highest calibre.
Little surprise then, that when band members Brian May and Roger Taylor joined forces with comedian and author Ben Elton to create a musical based on the songs of Queen, it was an unrestrained success. The show opened at London's Dominion Theatre in 2002 and has been playing to packed houses (in the West End and on tour) ever since.
The show is set in a bland dystopian future, where young people listen to rock music or, more accurately the music of Queen, as an act of rebellion. Critics were mostly unkind when it opened but audiences loved it, which is all that really matters. It has become the theatre's longest-running musical and will mark a decade in residence in May 2012.
