How was your experience?
What a fun night at the theatre. On its surface, "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" is a glitz and glitter disco-fest. At its heart it is a story of love, family (by blood or by those we choose), and acceptance. From the Divas' first entrance to the megamix finale bows it is pure joy. It took me a bit of time to adjust to the Aussie accents but the actors all handle their roles beautifully. This is an effective translation of the cult movie to stage musical with songs of the era. Needless to say the outrageous costumes, many inspired by the movie, are a highlight.
