Review: PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT at Titusville Playhouse Photo Review: PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT at Titusville Playhouse
by Joseph Harrison - Mar 12, 2023

One of the things I love about musical theatre is how it can be so many different things all at once. Shows that tackle a deep subject or address a serious social topic sit next to light and fun stories of queens and knights in shining armor, and all make great musicals. And some shows, like PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT tackle all of the above, but do so wrapped in a glittery, colorful wrapping. So, I was particularly excited to make it out to Titusville to see Titusville Playhouse‚Äôs PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT (now playing through March 26th) ‚Äď and found there a rollicking, good time that also strikes a particular nerve at this moment in history.
