Alex Gaumond, Alasdair Harvey, Lauren Samuels to Star in London's We Will Rock You
Lauren Samuels and Alasdair Harvey will join the cast on Monday, October 10, in the roles of female lead Scaramouche and villain Khashoggi, respectively. They join male lead Alex Gaumond as Galileo, along with Kevin Kennedy (Pop), Brenda Edwards (Killer Queen) and Rachel John (Meat). Also joining the cast will be Wayne Robinson as Britney.
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.
