Pantages Theatre

BETTE MIDLER proudly presents the most OUTRAGEOUSLY FUN Broadway musical: PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT! This spectacular show tells the uplifting story of a trio of friends on a road trip of a lifetime, who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed. An international hit with over 500 dazzling, 2011 Tony Award-winning costumes, PRISCILLA features a hit parade of dance-floor favorites including “It’s Raining Men,” “Finally” and “I Will Survive.” The Hollywood Reporter calls PRISCILLA “funny and fabulous! Joyous entertainment with eye-popping visuals and unexpected heart!”

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...The creators’ delight in recontextualizing these familiar songs is so infectious that you cheer when they get it just right and shrug when the fit is a little strained. Ultimately, it’s impossible to resist “Priscilla”’s eagerness to please. Audiences should prepare for a raucous and scenic ride."

"...It seems that Priscilla should play the entire summer at the Pantages. If Wicked could do it, so should Priscilla, but alas, no. There are many other cities on the tour so you only have 3 weeks to see it. Run, don’t walk to get tix."

"...Under the direction of Simon Philips, Priscilla is an action-packed non-stop sequin fest filled with precise, audience-aware timing, decadent costume changes, and fluid choreography."

"...So, if you are looking for a fun, simple, shallow night out with the promise of being entertained by lots of pretty people, performances and props, “Priscilla” is perfect. If you want more depth, see “Priscilla” anyway, then go home and watch a Kubrick film."

"...For 150 outsized minutes, excess is success, more is more, and drag defies its name: As with many drag shows of the past, this raunchy runway manages to be a stairway to paradise."

The Hollywood Reporter - Recommended

"...In fact, the dogged professionalism of the production may both underlie its shortcoming of vision and be its saving grace. The actors, all seasoned veterans, know how to hold the stage and impart the necessary emotional information with broad clarity and touching skill, though depth is pointedly avoided. For a show that is amply long at two-and-a-half hours, it’s a blessing that it gets better as it goes along."

"...With so much flamboyant fun to be had, it seems almost churlish to complain about the storytelling, but duty compels. The first casualties of any good film’s transformation into a musical tend to be delicacy, understatement, and density of feeling, and indeed none of those qualities have made it through the librettists’s distillation and vulgarization process for Broadway. The highs of the trek from Sydney to Alice Springs are higher than ever, but none of the lows resonates. None of it seems to matter much, to the characters or to us."

"...Above all, “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” is a story about love, acceptance and making amends that rings truer and more vibrantly than ever before. It’s a spectacle for the eyes and an all-consuming feast for the ears that shouldn’t be missed. That is, unless you don’t like having a good time."

LA Stage Times - Not Recommended

"...It’s primarily a fashion show and scenic spectacle, with a bare-bones book. The father-son relationship that provides the hinge of the Priscilla story has no heft or surprises at all, making the argumentative relationship between father and son in Sleepless in Seattle look positively textured and substantive."

Frontiers - Recommended

"...On first glance, Priscilla: Queen of the Desert – The Musical has a number of things against it. It’s yet another musical based on a movie (snore). It has no original songs (ugh). And it’s sure to be camptastic in that watered-down family-friendly way that undercuts the lifestyle presented (please). So it was a gleeful surprise to discover that, while all of those things were front and center, the resulting production is a giddy mix of fun, camp, spectacle, humor, and heart."

"...Priscilla has as many sweet, tender moments as it does bubble and froth, and though the story carries little surprise, it doesn’t matter at all. The costumes, the dancing, the soundtrack, and a trio of terrific leading performances are plenty to make this traveling show a hit."
