We Will Rock You Opens at the Ahmanson tonight and I'm excited to be invited. It will run through August 24. This play was a long running hit (11years) in the West End and won the Olivier Audience Award in 2011. It features 24 hits from the Band Queen
I get the sense there is a carnival atmosphere to this show as audience members are encouraged to wear their concert t-shirts, download lighter apps, and drinks are allowed to be brought into the auditorium. The show is described as "set in the future on a planet once called Earth that is now controlled by a big corporation. Computer-generated music reigns, no rock music is heard, all musical instruments are banned and conformity is enforced. A pair of young renegades, Galileo and Scaramouche, dare to break free and bring the power of rock back to the people."
This instructional video will tell you everything you need to know.
