Go West

Priscilla Queen of the Desert is the latest stage musical to hit the stage! While I was in NYC last week, I kept running into advertisements for this musical all over town. I must admit had no idea what the show was about but it looked like a blast of fun. Another thing I could tell from all the ads was that it was filled with well-known dance pop songs as the score! The book was written by Australian film director & writer Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott and is a stage adaptation of Elliott's 1994 cult film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. The story centers around a drag queen named Mitzi Mitosis who's "real" life named Anthony "Tick" Belrose. He who lives in small town in Australia an wants an road trip adventure. He convinces his two friends and fellow drag queens (Bernadette Bassenger and Felicia Jollygoodfellow), to join him for that journey on a large tour bus, they called "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". I am very interested of hearing from you all on your impression of the new musical. Does it look like a good time or an over the top drag show? Check out the videos below of the cast of the Broadway musical "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", Will Swenson, Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams.
