The Buell Theatre: 9/3 – 9/15
A blitz of glitz and falsie tits, “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” is an explosion of vibrant Life that is simply scrumptious!
It’s “Mama Mia” for those who wish to reminisce about the gay dance floors of the eighties. All those famous songs to which you shook your booty in that era are blasted out across the Buell Theatre with joyous abandon. Both your eyes and ears will be dazzled by this eye-popping, ear-pleasing show.
The book is nearly non-existent and the dialogue, much of which gets lost in the otherwise magical melee, is to this reviewer’s sensibilities unimportant.
The actors are all handsome and range from pretty to gorgeous in their outrageous regalia and they are just about perfect in following Mel Brooks’ mandate in “The Producers” to “Keep it Gay. Keep it Gay! Keep it Gay!”
If you happen to be as much of a light junkie as this reviewer you will be dazzled by the flashy, hypnotic Technicolor lighting design.
The Tony Award-Winning costume design is smashing!
I’m not sure why everyone wasn’t out of their seats and dancing in the aisles! Perhaps it was just that stodgy group of first night theatre critics afraid to let their inner drag queen out!
It’s a raging fun partay and you will be SO glad you went!
