After coming back from Vegas I had to go to NYC for a couple of meetings. Since I was in NYC anyways it had to take a lot of convincing me, but I ended up deciding to see a show. Instead of going to see Follies with Elaine Page and Bernadette Peters, I decided to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical because I wanted something happy and fun. I had a great seat in the center of the first balcony which was absolutely the best place to buy a ticket for Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical. But should you buy Priscilla Queen of the Desert tickets?
Priscilla Queen of the Desert the musical is a show produced by Bette Midler. If you have ever seen a Bette Midler show then you know to expect a ton of foul humor and jokes, tacky but fun music and everything done over the top. If you’re a fan then you’ll probably love the show. If you liked the movie version then you may enjoy the show. If you hate bright lights, glitter, beads, sequins and feathers, do not go to this show. Would I recommend going to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert on broadway, yes, but only if there isn’t another show that you are dying to see.
Priscilla Queen of the Desert the musical is a fun filled and high energy dance musical with as much shiney things as you could ever want to see. The only way to fit anymore sequins on the stage would be to actually bedazzle it, but the actors would probably have an issue with that. The show stays very true to the movie and they keep all of the important scenes, but they do update the show to include cell phones, they changed Abba to Madonna and also upated some of the jokes which are from when the movie was produced. One thing that I absolutely loved was that Bette added in her own sense of humor and took it overboard. Not only did they add a ton of new jokes in, but they added in a few new props as well.
When Bernadette is driving the bus, she ends up killing a few things. You see a street sign go by with a Kangaroo and all of the sudden a dead kangaroo goes by with glitter blood all over it. Then you see a sign for Koala’s and a giant dead Koala goes by covered in glitter blood. After the Koala you get Tinky Winky and sure enough, a giant Tinky Winky from Teletubbies goes by covered in glitter blood. The show is absolutely hilarious and with the new jokes is even better.
Bette Midler keeps everything from the ping pong ball routine in the bar to Felicia singing on the high heel on the bus. If you want a great seat for Priscilla Queen of the Desert on broadway, you shouldn’t sit in the orchestra, but you should sit in the first balcony. You will not only get to see Felicia come out over the middle of the crowd in front of you, but you’ll get to see everything on stage better as well.
