(SPOT.ph) Following more than two years of hiatus amid the pandemic, live plays and musicals are back. And what better way to welcome back international productions than with a staging of the global hit We Will Rock You, a jukebox musical told through songs by British rock band Queen. It's set to be staged at the newly constructed Samsung Performing Arts Theater at Circuit Makati in Makati City. Tickets are on sale starting today, June 6.
Prices are: P2,539.20 for E Reserve (Balcony 1 and 2, Left and Right); P3,174 for D Reserve (Balcony 2 Center); P4,020 for C Reserve (Balcony 1 Center, Loge Left and Right); P5,078 for B Reserve (Orchestra Left and Right); P5,713 for A Reserve (Loge Center, Orchestra Center, Orchestra Left and Right); and P6,348 for VIP (Orchestra Center), all based on the ticket site.
The We Will Rock You musical, which features Queen's songs in the backdrop of a fictional plot by Ben Elton, tells the story of a group of Bohemians living for free thought, no-holds-barred fashion sense, and all-original live music in a futuristic setting where rock-and-roll doesn't exist. It features 24 of Queen's smash hits, including "Killer Queen," "Under Pressure," "We Are the Champions," "Radio Ga Ga," "I Want to Break Free," "Don’t Stop Me Now," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites the Dust," and "We Will Rock You."
The production directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Nick Winston is set to go on a multi-year international tour, with the Manila audience being among the first in the world to see it. The set and video backdrop are by Tom Rogers while the costumes are by Sarah Mercade.
We Will Rock You runs from October 27 to November 20 at Samsung Performing Arts Theatre, Hippodrimo Street, Circuit Makati, Makati City. Tickets are available through Ticketworld.
