The last days of disco are approaching for the flashy musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The production will end its Broadway run on June 24 at the Palace Theatre. Starring Will Swenson, Nick Adams and Tony Sheldon, Priscilla opened on March 20, 2011 and will have played 23 previews and 526 regular performances at the time of closing.
Directed by Simon Phillips, Priscilla Queen of the Desert tells the story of three best friends (Swenson, Sheldon and Adams) on a wild road trip across the Australian Outback. Adapted from the film of the same name, Priscilla features over 500 dazzling costumes and hit songs including “It’s Raining Men,” “Material Girl” and “I Will Survive.”
In addition to the trio of stars, Priscilla also features Adam Lefevre, Julie Reiber, Jacqueline B. Arnold, Lisa Howard and Anastacia McCleskey. The musical was adapted for the stage by Stephen Elliot and Allan Scott and featured choreography by Ross Coleman.
Aw, this show was such a blast. Sad to see it go.
