OK- don't plan on a thick plot, dramatically unfolding characters or surprise endings. The story has just enough substance to weave Queen songs and many famous song titles and lyrics together. The actors sing their hearts out. The scenery...continued

Hilarious musical that uses the crazier lyrics from Bohemian Rhapsody and other songs of Queen to tell the story about teaching people to rock with real instruments instead of autotunes and sampling etc.

Played like a high school production with a giant budget. Great lead vocals, however. The part of "Killer Queen" seemed like a role written for a drag queen, but played by a woman.

I am a die-hard Queen fan so of course I absolutely loved it!!! Somehow they updated the dialogue with current events and song titles which was hilarious. It was nice to have audience participation as it was impossible to just sit still during...continued

Cadillac Palace is a great venue for a show-- great sound, good viewing, easy to get to and park.

The show wasn't really a Queen musical. It was a thin story, with a great band, and good lead singer. The Killer Queen was anything but. She seemed...continued

It was easy getting tickets from Goldstar, the place was easy to get to but the musical was not worth my while in going. The actors could not reach the high notes in some of the songs and you were left wondering what song were they singing. ...continued

We Will Rock You has been playing London for over a decade so I was a little surprised that it was only playing a week in Chicago. The story line, like Mamma Mia, is a little silly but the music rocks and the leads (with the exception of the...continued

We ordered our tickets on a whim when we were passing the Cadillac Palace theatre 2 days before to the show. The ordering of the tickets was simple and easy; picked up the tickets at the box office window 20 minutes before the 2:00 matinee on...continued

Saw this show in London a couple of years ago. Fluff story, but if you like Queen, you will enjoy hearing all of your favorite songs. Liked it better in London - but then it might have been the overall mood of being in London.

This was an excellent show. As always my wife and I were delighted with the seating thru Goldstar. The performers and the staging were excellent. I had not expected the show to have a "storyline" with multiple scenes. The "storyline" was to me...continued

For those who love classic rock, this show is perfect. One can also tell that they update the show to stay in line with current events. Musically great, and funny throughout the entire show. A must see for music fans!

I am a self admitted HUGE Queen fan and had very high expectations. The show starts off slow but picks up. I thought the acting was eh, story line was weak/contrived, singing was mixed. Felt like there was little on-stage chemistry. My girlfriends...continued

Cadillac Palace Theater is beautiful and we loved our lower balcony seats. Our view was great and access was very easy because we were right at the entrance.
We Will Rock You is an amazing show. Perfect for Queen fans and those who are not as...continued

Completely disappointing. I saw the preview at the Broadway in Chicago show in millenium park this summer and it looked fabulous. I was really looking forward to seeing the entire show. Sadly it was just aweful.

I loved this show! I saw it when it was in Vegas and had hoped they would tour again in the states eventually and I got my wish! Don't go into it thinking it's going to be a serious musical, it's very tongue-in-cheek and slightly goofy, but well...continued

It was a cheesy musical, but we loved the songs and had great seats.
