Queen Musical Goes on Tour

Queen
The Queen musical We Will Rock You will tour the United States for the first time starting in October, with new dates added last week in addition to those already announced.

The show, which tells a story of post-apocalyptic world in which music is forbidden and rock music is unknown, has played in Las Vegas but has never gone on tour. That will change on October 15 in Baltimore, and the tour will wrap up in Los Angeles in August 2014.

Justin Crum (The Addams Family, Tarzan) and Ruby Lewis (Jersey Boys) have been cast as Galileo and Scaramouche, respectively, joining Jacqueline Arnold as Killer Queen, P.J. Griffith as Kashoggi, Ryan Knowles as Pop, Erica Peck as Oz and Jared Zirilli as Britney.

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are heavily involved in each new production of the show around the world, casting their eyes and ears over the musical authenticity of the various casts, and they often perform at together at premieres and special events linked to the production. The show has been playing at London's Dominion Theatre since May 2002.

Queen and Ben Elton (who wrote the story of the musical) have also announced Schools Will Rock You, an initiative for schools to enable them to develop and stage their own version of the show (following a similar program in the UK).
