Ben Elton worked closely with Brian May and Roger Taylor to incorporate Queen songs into the story when he wrote We Will Rock You. The original production opened on May 12, 2002 at the Dominion Theatre, which has a seating capacity of 2,163.
On Aug. 17, 2005 it became the longest running musical at that venue.
In the show, the Bohemians based themselves at Heartbreak Hotel, above the ruins of Tottenham Court Road tube station. In real life, Dominion Theatre is located above the tube station.
