Disappointing - verging on amateur performance, only saved by the music. Nauseating storyline. - JK

I went today and was not disappointed. It was superb. The costumes, choreography and music were second to none. Absolutely tremendous. My hands are red raw from clapping. - Tricia Keegan

We went last night and loved the show, Scarmouche's voice was out of this world incredible and I was amazed at how fabulous Jenny Douglas was, the young Scottish girl from Dorothy was superb! The story was a load of codswallop but the costumes were fabulous, especially Killer Queens' outfits. great coreography and big wigs, I loved it! Yeah the floating faces were pretty dodgy, in honesty alot of the graphics were a bit of a nuisance but altogether a fab show, I'd recommend! - Jean Goldman

Just back from the matinee showing and I was blown away. Sold out performance and a standing ovation that at the end that seemed to last 10 minutes! It was fantastic entertainment with great performances from the cast and musicians. - Fandan

Was looking forward to this, but found it a great disappointment. The paper-thin plot I was prepared for, but the somewhat disinterested cast and poor dance routines made me wonder why I bothered. The only saving grace was the visual display which kept me interested during most of the show. Glad to see at least someone else thought the same. If it's any consolation Sooz the second half was equally dire. - Zog

excellent...noel sullivan was outstanding. its a real feel good show that brings the old queen classics to an audience of young and old alike. as for the professional critics who whinge...the proof of the pudding is the reception from the audience and today they gave a standing ovation...well done to all the cast . - marie clark

Sooz - Thank you for reminding me of that dreadful Only the Good Die Young moment. Watching the ghosts of young rockers float about in the background like scum on the surface of a pond completely undermined Jenny Douglas's otherwise excellent vocal performance and killed the drama of the moment stone dead. It has to be one of the most ridiculous directorial decisions that I have ever seen.
Thank you all for leaving your opinions on the show. It's great to have a range of audience reactions to sit alongside the review.

Ok, my pal and I are in the minority. We had great seats and left at half time. I love Queen hits, not a big musical fan, I was amazed that I enjoyed Mama Mia when it came out, BUT it had a good plot! I'm sorry to say Elton's script was half Panto, with I thought naff 'innuendo' jokes about being 'limp' or 'hard' etc, the main male lead, tried his best to be 'Travolta in Grease', however over exageration of his legs at the begining made me wonder if this was the 'B' cast. Powerful singing from the actresses, but to be honest I wouldn't expect anything less from a big show. What took the biscuit for us, was the number they did (forgive me Queen fans as I can't remember the name of the song) a number about famous people dieing young, the backdrop had faces slowly zooming out and fading of Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Freddy Himself, fine, but when Micheal Jackson zoomed out, I thought na too far! I would have preferred to see Gerry Rafferty floating off. Other friends of ours were there too, and said they loved it, and Brian May made an appearance. But sorry Brian, you lost my vote on this one, you sold out. Thin plot and the only saving grace were your songs, and my pal and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the originals on the drive home at half time.
It's put me off musicals for another decade. - Sooz

Brilliant, especially for any Queen fan. Superb band and music. Who cares about the plot?? It's an excuse to enjoy some of the greatest rock anthems of all time.
The cast put on such an energetic performance, it was a joy.
Stop whingeing, some people,please! Especially, the so called "professional" critics.
Life is hard enough.
Enjoy the show!!! - Rory Mac Leod
