WOS TV: Brenda Edwards On ... Bringing the X Factor to WWRY

Former X Factor finalist Brenda Edwards recently joined the West End cast of Queen musical We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre.

Edwards fills in as Killer Queen, a role she’s already played in the show’s touring production, for long-serving cast member Mazz Murray, who is taking a maternity break. Since competing on X Factor in 2005, her stage credits have included Chicago, Carmen Jones and Brenda’s Gospel Christmas.

Set in the future, We Will Rock You tells the story of a world in which globalisation has meant the death of real music in favour of computer-produced cyber stars, a status quo which the rebel Bohemians, harking back to the Golden Age of rock (embodied by Queen), are trying to overthrow so that they can write and perform their own music. An unintentional hero ends up saving the kids of Planet Mall from the tyrannical Killer Queen and discovers the place of living rock.
