Priscilla, Queen of the Desert- a background to the production
Australians Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott used well-known songs for the score of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and created an insane show with instant audience appeal. The show was adapted from Elliott's 1994 film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It debuted at Sydney's Lyric Theatre in October 2006 before transferring to Melbourne and New Zealand. Such was its success in Australasia that this ground-breaking show was soon seen in the London's West End and on Broadway in New York where it proved the ideal vehicle for Bette Midler's direction.
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert tells the story of a transgender woman and two drag queens who are booked to perform a drag show in Alice Springs, deep in the heart of conservative Australia. Rather than flying the trio decide to make the journey a road trip in their battered lavender bus, affectionately named Priscilla. The trip turns into a comedy of errors as Mitzi (Tick), Felicia (Adam) and Bernadette encounter homophobia, new horizons and, finally, love.
