LA's Celebration Theatre Performs Priscilla Queen Of The Desert
Beginning its fabulous life in the form of the outrageous 1994 Australian comedy-drama starring Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp, Priscilla Queen of the Desert reinvented itself as a Tony-winning musical that has enjoyed tours around the world as well as a critically acclaimed Broadway stint produced by fairy glam mother Bette Midler in 2011. The iconic gay production now enjoys a local run at LA's Celebration Theatre, a company dedicated to entertain and inspire with productions that celebrate the LGBTQ community.
The story follows the misadventures of two drag queens and a transgender performer as they journey across the Australian outback to perform at a remote resort in Alice Springs. The journey brings them face to face with a menagerie of colorful characters as well uncomfortable incidents of prejudice, forcing them far from their comfort zones. Expect dazzling costumes, drag comedy and host of dance-floor-filling tunes!
