The first national tour of Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical is coming to the Palace Theatre in Cleveland, from January 15-27, 2013 as part of the KeyBank Broadway Series at PlayhouseSquare.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical will star Wade McCollum ("Tick/Mitzi"), Scott Willis ("Bernadette") and BRyan West ("Adam/Felicia") as the 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. Joe Hart stars as "Bob."

With over 500 dazzling 2011 Tony Award-winning costumes, Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical features a hit parade of over 20 dance-floor favorites including "It's Raining Men," "Finally" and "I Will Survive."

The new musical opened on Broadway to critical acclaim on March 20, 2011 at the Palace Theatre. The Hollywood Reporter called Priscilla "funny and fabulous! Joyous entertainment with eye-popping visuals and unexpected heart!" NY-1 News raved "Beneath all that glitz beats a great big sequined heart!" WOR Radio sang "All the songs you've loved for years will blow you out of your seat!"

Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical won a 2011 Tony Award for Best Costume Design for Academy Award winners Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner's designs. The new hit musical received three Best Musical award nominations from the Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Award organizations. Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner were also honored with 2011 Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Costume Design.
