The International Smash Hit!
PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT
Mon 2 – Sat 7 Nov
Thu & Sat mats 2.30pm
Well done Theatre Royal Brighton for this one!
What a fabulous show! This was theatre at its best! At the end the auditorium was a mass of waving fans ecstatic with delight at the spectacular they had just witnessed.
From the very start we knew we were being treated to something very special when coloured spotlights lit up the ceiling.
Three drag artists decide to buy a ramshackle old bus and drive across the Australian outback to Alice Springs having adventures along the way.
Duncan James, star of pop group Blue gives a stellar performance as Tick and is ably supported by Simon Green as Bernadette and Adam Bailey as Felicia.
Naomi Slights is particularly impressive as Marion and Julie Yammanee delights the audience as Cynthia.
The songs were extremely well done with a host of old favourites including ‘Go West‘, ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way‘, and ‘Always On My Mind‘.
Moments of high drama give way to tender ones as we discover the characters are all too human.
The costumes are outrageous, and such an array of colours to behold!
The two one hour sessions, divided by a 20 minute interval, are just the right length to leave the audience totally dazzled.
Back by popular demand! Priscilla Queen of the Desert, starring Duncan James as Tick, returns to Theatre Royal Brighton for a week long run from Monday 2 – Saturday 7 November.
The show’s producer David Ian said:
I am absolutely thrilled that audiences have demanded more of Priscilla!
The reaction the show gets at theatres everywhere is something I’ve never witnessed before – it is truly a party not to be missed.
Having Duncan James play Tick is just the icing on the cupcake!”
As one quarter of the pop band Blue, Duncan James has sold over 13 million records, had three number one albums and forty number one singles worldwide.
His stage credits include playing Warner Huntington III in the West End production of Legally Blonde and Billy Flynn in Chicago. He was also a finalist on ITV1’s Dancing on Ice.
Get ready for the ride of your life!
