Priscilla Opens on Broadway
Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical, the eye-popping, disco-thumping show based on the popular Australian film, opened on Broadway last night. Filled with camp humor, classic club anthems and variations on the Oscar-winning costume designs by Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner, the newest jukebox tuner tells the story of three drag queens traveling across the Australian outback in the titular (and silicone-enhanced) bus, hoping to find redemption, family and new love. Judging by the buff and well-buffed cast led by Tony Sheldon, Will Swenson and (the buffest-of-them-all) Nick Adams, there isn’t a bottle of Nair left in the Big Apple.
