We Will Rock You: The Public's Favourite Show - Official

The Queen-Ben Elton musical We Will Rock You has been crowned the UK’s favourite show.

At last night’s Olivier awards, British theatre’s answer to the Oscars, the long-running musical received the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Audience Award, the only category decided entirely by members of the public who have been voting via the awards website.

The musical came out top in the category which saw more than 43,000 votes cast, beating a shortlist including Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys and Les Miserables.

The guitar-thrashing, leather clad musical which is based on over two dozen Queen songs with a script and direction by Ben Elton, has been one of the West End’s biggest attractions since it opened at London’s Dominion Theatre almost nine years ago. Over the last two years it has drawn the largest Christmas week  audiences across the whole of the West End and has become the longest running show ever to play at The Dominion.

A further production of the show is now in its second record-breaking year touring the UK. 

Accepting the award last night Queen guitarist Brian May said: “Thank you to the tremendous talent that has come through our door and kept us rocking throughout the years.”

The current London cast includes Coronation Street star Kevin Kennedy in the role of Pop, X Factor finalist Brenda Edwards as the Killer Queen and  Ricardo Afonso and Sarah French in the roles of the rock rebels set to change the world, Galileo and Scaramouche.

To date, We Will Rock You has been seen by more than 5 million people in the UK and by over 12 million worldwide. While presently booking through to July 2011, the producers today announced that from March 28 the booking period is to be extended to October 22.

The 2011-2012 tour has its Cardiff opening next Tuesday March 22 before continuing on to play Southampton, Aberdeen, Liverpool, Bristol and Leeds before finishing up in Edinburgh in January 2012.

Music and Music Supervision by Queen/Roger Taylor and Brian May.  Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road, London, W1. From March 28 bookings will be taken through to October 22, 2011.
