Featured Reviews For Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: The Musical


You Will Survive ‘Priscilla’ and Shake Your Booty, Too - Bloomberg News
So what if Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott's crude book, based on Elliott's film "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," panders to a crowd that doesn't need winning over? The first act works too hard and Will Swenson's voice seems to be on the verge of going on strike. Nevertheless, he's pretty winning as Tick; so is Nick Adams as Felicia. A cut above, for bringing tremendous heart to a predictable role, is Tony Sheldon as the touching Bernadette. Hats off too to C. David Johnson as lovable Bob, the man of Bernadette's dreams. Bring your dancing shoes.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert - New York Daily News
Throughout "Priscilla," the three leads don't look male or female but like bizarre aliens. Call me a party pooper, but that was enough to make this supposed frolic a drag.
