Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
The Palace Theatre, NYC
The concept of a jukebox musical, featuring, among other things, disco songs from the '70s and '80s, and telling the story of three drag queens traveling across the Australian desert in a bus may not instantly excite you. That is the idea behind Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the new Broadway musical, based on the 1994 cult film of the same name. Don't let any preconceived reservations stop you from giving this musical a chance -- it is a thoroughly enjoyable, generously entertaining show that looks like a real crowd pleaser.
