STUFISH Entertainment Architects were approached to oversee the adaptation and installation of ‘We Will Rock You’ on board Royal Caribbean’s new ‘Anthem of the Seas’ cruise liner, as the ships headline show. Video content from the original West End production was re-worked and re-formatted to fit the new venue, and entirely new content was produced to take advantage of the venues movable video legs, introducing new scenic changes and performer reveals into the production.
We Will Rock You is a musical based on the songs of Queen and a book by Ben Elton. The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and does the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. The show ran for twelve years in London’s Dominion Theatre and has been produced all over the world in five continents. A fast paced, theatrically complex show, We Will Rock You is one of the most technically challenging stage shows Royal Caribbean have hosted to date.
