Priscilla Queen of the Desert Broadway Show – Three Drag Queens Head into the Australian Outback

Priscilla Queen of the Desert
When The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert first hit the silver screen in 1994, the themes of sexuality, bigotry, and acceptance were especially relevant. The Australian film made history with its hilarious yet frank telling of the story of two drag queens and one transsexual who make their way across the Australian outback on their way to a show in a small town called Alice Springs.

The film provided the basis for the stage version of the story which opened in 2006 in Sydney, Australia to rave reviews. The show is now set to open on Broadway’s Palace Theatre Stage on March 20 with previews beginning February 28. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Broadway show tells the story of three friends who venture into the Australian Outback on their way to a new job in the remote town of Alice Springs. The travelers include two drags queens and a transsexual woman who are set to perform nightly for a four week engagement at a hotel in Alice Springs. They rent a bus that they name Priscilla and set off on their grand adventure, meeting all kinds of characters along the way.

Some of the people they meet are not very keen on the idea of two homosexual men and one transsexual woman travelling through their town and choose violent means to express their homophobic opposition. You will be inspired by the humor, grace and dignity with which the group of travelers faces this hatred and bigotry. Their story of triumph is one that is still relatable to audiences everywhere.
