Last week I went to see Priscilla, Queen of the Desert at the theatre for the fourth time. I would have reviewed this wonderful musical sooner but seeing as I had booked it again I thought I'd wait to review it with fresh eyes and more informed opinions! The show is based on the film 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' which was released in 1994 starring Hugo Weaving, Terrence Stamp and Guy Pearce. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: The Musical opened in Sydney, Australia in 2006. After a successful run it moved to London in 2009 and will be premiering on Broadway in 2011. The Story Tick (stage name Mitzi Mitosis) is "Sydney's ... Read the complete review

I went to visit this on a recent trip to london. Admittedly it wasnt my first choice and it was a question of cost that i went to see it, on the day i went to the booking office at leicester square this one was on offer. So why not I wasnt sure what to expect but when I came out, i felt so uplifted, if your on a downer and a bit fed up, this is the one for you. The costumes are beautiful and its so well put together.

Priscilla: Queen of the Desert The Musical is honestly one of the best nights I have ever had at the theatre. Having seen the film a few times I knew the storyline and was very much looking forward to seeing how it would be transported onto the stage. My friend who accompanied me to the theatre had never seen the film so was not sure at all what to expect. Neither of us were disappointed in the slightest. Our fun night started when we bought our feather boa's at the box office and ordered our 'priscilla' flashing glass drinks at the bar for the interval. We took our seats and started chatting to our fellow theater goers who were a complete mix of people, ... Read the complete review

If you haven't seen the movie of the same name, on which this musical is based-then let me initially explain-Priscilla is a bus- and should you decide to book your seats, then hold tight guys and gals - ring that bell, get ready to roll, cos it's gonna be a bumpy ride. Three friends, two who currently work as drag queens and one ex drag queen, (having been persuaded to come out of retirement), set out to go across Australia. They are not only going to do a club gig in Alice Springs, but also one of them is to be reunited with the club's owner-his ex wife and his son. The wife and son being the result of a momentary - well what can I say?- experiment on the ... Read the complete review
