Went to see “We Will Rock You” at the Playhouse last night – see the post title for my impression of it 🙂
The show was amazingly good – I highly recommend it to everyone. The only iffy bit (which was the Playhouse’s fault, not the show) was that the seats were so narrow in terms of leg room that I had to put my legs onto the (thankfully) empty row in front of us for comfort. I’m not that tall. My 6ft6+ colleague had to do that out of necessity – he would have been really limping today if there were people in those seats.
Ben Elton wrote it, so it’s really funny, but the best joke was this one: At some point in the show, it is announced to the dissidents that they are going to be taken away to have all creativity and originality stripped from them and be turned into mindless drones. One of them pipes up with “You’re taking us to the Bluff?”
Funny enough, my colleague from the Bluff didn’t think it was quite that amusing…
