Queen's 'We Will Rock You' rolls towards Miami

"We Will Rock You," the worldwide smash-hit musical built around Queen's biggest hits, makes its South Florida debut this month at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.

The show, which features 24 of the iconic band's songs, is the latest in the highly anticipated "Broadway in Miami" season. It will run Dec. 10-15 in the Ziff Ballet Opera House.

The show boasts a fantastic score of Queen's biggest hits, including "Another One Bites the Dust," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "We Are The Champions," "Bohemian Rhapsody," and, of course, "We Will Rock You."

As with other jukebox musicals, the songs are wrapped around a plot. This one envisions a time in the distant future where a group of Bohemians struggle to restore the exchange of free thought, fashion and live music in a world where individuality is unknown and music is forbidden.

The show opened in 2002 at the Dominion Theater in the West End, where it was panned by critics, but became a sensation and is still running more than 10 years later. It is now officially the ninth longest running show in the West End, and was crowned the UK's favorite show at the 2011 Oliver Awards, an award equivalent to the Tony Awards, in a category chosen by the public.

Outside of the UK, the show has now been seen in 17 countries, playing to an audience of 15 million people.

There will also be a "Party Pit" area in the theater consisting of premium front row seats where patrons will be encouraged to dress up, rock out and express their inner Freddie Mercury.
