I'm trying to find out from Brandon Ethridge if his job with WWRY North America tour is going to pre-empt his touring with Queen Extravaganza, and if Roger's looking for a replacement for QE keyboards.

I messaged him but he hasn't seen it yet.

Disappointed Tristan Avakian is (only) in the WWRY band playing guitar, and not a performing cast member. Having never been to the stage production, are the band musicians visible? I've watched several youtube clips, and never noticed.

I guee every production is slightly different but certainly during the 3 different productions I've seen, no the band is not visible other than at the very end when the "story" includes them but it's really done just for the sake of then getting a chance to get some applause from the audience. But for 90%+ of the time you can't see them.

Thanks BitterTears, I figured as much, since it would detract from the actors. But I hoped the musicians would be a stage orchestra 'pit' in front.

ETA: I posed my Ethridge question to Queen Extravaganza "un"official fb page and she found out that WWRY will be subbing someone in for him during QE dates.
Just now got my reply from Brandon:
"3:06pm
Brandon Ethridge

Hi July!! Your message was in my spam folder for some reason. That's why I'm just now replying.
I will always play all shows for QE. But I will get a sub for WWRY when the dates conflict."
*************************
Brandon is quite a character. Any of you that (highly recommended) go see QE on their European tour, take advantage of any set up meet and greets with the band.

You'll love them.
Final edit.
Sorry for hijacking the WWRY thread. :oops:

Tristan posted a video of him playing acoustic guitar behind Galileo and Scaramouche singing You're My Best Friend to each other.

I'm very sad to report I was extremely underwhelmed by the performance of that number, other than the actress for Scaramouche has a very nice voice.

I hope Ben Elton hasn't sterilized the script down so far for American audiences that it has lost it's real bohemian charm.

I need to see more of these changes before I'm going to spend the money and the trip to see it.

There is a contest for a walk on role in a LA WWRY performance. Contestants must submit a video of themselves singing a Queen song. I thought this one was good;
