During the Golden Age of the Broadway musical, composers wrote intentionally catchy patter songs, inserted a kickline for the ensemble, gave the leading lady an 11 o’clock number and sent the audience home grinning … and, if you were a hit, humming a tune. They don’t make ’em like that anymore… only they do — they are called revivals.

Despite the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury nearly 30 years ago from complication due to AIDS, the band has continued packing arenas, only with American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert on vocals.
