Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
Running since February 2011
A new musical based on the 1994 film about three drag queens traveling across the Australian outback in a bus called Priscilla, the show features a score of dance club favorites and Tony-winning costumes that defy description.
Closes June 24th.

The Broadway production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert closed June 24, 2012. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

According to its producers, "PRISCILLA is the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dance-floor favorites, this wildly fresh and funny new musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!"

The film that spawned this musical was generally well-received by critics, and (as predicted by several of said critics) has become a cult classic, of sorts. It as a Golden Globe nominee for Best Picture, and won an Oscar for Best Costumes for designers Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner. Chappel and Gardiner also designed the Broadway costumes, and won the 2011 Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards for best costumes.

The show came to Broadway from Toronto, where it is was prepped for North American audiences after successful productions in Sydney and London. Australian Tony Sheldon, who starred in both previous versions and received an Olivier Award nomination for his performance in London, stars in the Broadway production and received a Tony nomination. Here's a fun promotional video from Toronto:
