Broadway-bound Priscilla Queen of the Desert had her official debut at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre on Tuesday, October 26th, and the show did not disappoint! It truly is a "journey to the heart of fabulous" and Toronto embraced the show with open arms. 

Glitz and glamour were not in short supply as a veritable who's who of Toronto and NYC theatre came together for a "pink carpet" opening followed by a lavish after-party at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel and conference centre. 

BWW has been on hand every step of Priscilla's North American journey thus far, giving its readers sneak peek looks at rehearsals and "Priscilla" herself, and now we are pleased to bring you photos of the gorgeous finale as well as the after-party.  Join in the fun and see Priscilla before she packs her pink bags and heads to her new home in NYC.  Toronto is lucky enough to have the show for the next 12 weeks, and tickets can be purchased through Mirvish Productions.
