Priscilla Queen of the Desert – The Musical shimmies into the West End tonight, starting previews at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End.
Billed as the ultimate feel-good show, pre-opening buzz and reports from its run in Sydney suggest that the musical’s timing is perfect. With acres of chiffon, millions of sequins and some show stopping numbers, it promises to banish any feelings of gloom from the capital.
Based on the Oscar award-winning film, PRISCILLA tells the story of Tick (Jason Donovan), Bernadette (Tony Sheldon) and Adam (Oliver Thornton), three glamorous Sydney drag queens who agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback.
The road trip that ensues proves to be a heart-warming, uplifting adventure as they hop onboard a battered old bus (nicknamed Priscilla) searching for love and friendship.
An array of outrageous costumes, spectacular sets and a score of dance-floor classics promises to raise the bar on fun in the West End this Spring. An unashamed crowd-pleaser.
