Alex Gaumond to Join West End's We Will Rock You
The musical has a book by Ben Elton and features 32 of Queen's greatest hits including "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Under Pressure", "Radio Gaga," and, "We Will Rock You." The production is directed by Elton, choreographed by Arlene Phillips, and designed by Mark Fisher and Willie Williams.
Set in the future, the show tells the story of a world in which globalization has meant the death of real music in favor of computer-produced cyber stars, a status quo which the rebel Bohemians 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.
Gaumond played the role of Galileo in the show's UK tour. He received an Olivier Award nomination for his performance as Emmett in Legally Blonde the Musical.
