The musical featuring Queen songs will forgo a Broadway bow and make a permanent home at the Paris Theatre des Arts at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
The production will be directed by Ben Elton with Mark Fisher as production designer. Its open ended run will begin August 16th.
Co-producer Jane Rosenthal previously said, “This doesn’t preclude us from opening in any other city. There has been a definite question of whether to come to New York, and we [studied] the challenge of opening in New York. We wouldn’t rule out any opportunity [down the road].”
The show will also open this fall in Sydney, Moscow, and Cologne.
We Will Rock You debuted at London’s Dominion Theatre in May 2002 and tells the story of a “rebel band fighting in a futuristic world where musical instruments are outlawed.”
