BWW Review: Celebration's Knockout PRISCILLA Has Already ExtendedBWW Review: Celebration's Knockout PRISCILLA Has Already Extended
by Don Grigware - Feb 19, 2018

'The mega-popular 1994 filmáTheáAdventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desertádelivered miles and miles of heart.áPriscilla Queen of the Desert the musicaláremains loyal toáthe movie áand isádelightfully extravagant and colorful with perhaps the most dazzling array of costumes, amazing sets and brilliant lighting design in theatrical history. Over the last few years it has become almost as popular as the film with touring companies in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Sweden as well as in the US'. This was my opening quote when the tour bowed at the Pantages in 2012. Now onstage at the small Celebration Theatre in Hollywood, the show is much scaled down but with an incredible cast of 11, under the amazing direction of Jessica Hanna, it is more bright and alive than ever. Audiences will fall in love with this brand newáPriscilla...áand come awayáexhilarated...and wanting more. (more...)

by Shari Barrett - Mar 10, 2014

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess.

Luckily, there's one on handů and his name is SHREK. (more...)
