Priscilla Pulls into Palace in March 2009???
The London production of Priscilla is co-produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group, which also owns the Palace. When the transfer from Down Under was announced last autumn (See News, 4 Oct 2007), it was originally slated to open here in late 2008.
Based on the 1994 Oscar-winning Australian film, Priscilla centres on Sydney drag queen Mitzi and her two fish-out-of-water friends, Felicia and Bernardette, are heading west across the desert to Alice Springs in their battered old bus, lip-synching their way through a string of disco hits as they go. The stage version, by members of the film’s creative team, had its world premiere in Sydney in October 2006.
