A Review of “Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical”
The over-the-top musical theatre bastion of Australian drag camp that is Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: The Musical finally arrived in San Francisco after its 2006 debut in Sydney.
The fast-paced show is a big, glitzy, glamorous affair, with 20 full-on production numbers and an awesome stage set including “Priscilla” the famous battered bus which blasts around the Australian outback with three friends and their show. It also features over 500 outrageous costumes.
I highly recommend seeing the musical. It is an action-packed non-stop sequin fest filled with precise, audience-aware timing, decadent costume changes, and fluid choreography.
