Enjoyed the music but the story was a bit lame. Compared to Mama Mia the story line was a very poor second. It could of been so much better. shame. - John

I have just got home from the Mayflower and felt so compelled to write this. Dire, dire, dire. I really cannot believe the script writers got away with this at all. The dialogue was inane, the relationship between the two leads was tenuous at best. I had been looking forward to this for weeks, but was bitterly disappointed. With the emotional resonance that Queen songs lends, it just seemed like poor dialogue was met with rock cliches followed by a Queen song. If I hadn't bought the tickets for me and my Mum, whose birthday it was, I would have walked out after 40 mins. Ideally, I'd like my 45 quid back and the time I wasted. On a positive note, Scaramooch, if that's spelt right, was the real star and she made the best of her lines and what was a terrible script. Rhydian was solid, but his role was so secondary, it didn't really matter. If you are a Queen fan, this show is sacrilege. If you like musical theatre, this is a joke. If you liked Mama Mia, then this show is for you - produced for the masses and appealing to those who lack taste. - George

I surprisingly really enjoyed it, despite not particularly liking Queen's music! There are some classic witty one liners throughout that made me chuckle.
Noel Sullivan has an amazing voice and played the lead role well. We had two understudy's as it was the matinee, and they were great too. - Mel69

I found the show just too strange. It was more about a silly story than the actual music. Not even all the greatest hits were sang. - Sarah81
