“Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical” is headed to Sin City for an 11-week engagement at The Venetian, beginning June 18. Wade McCollum, Scott Willis and Bryan West star along with Bob Hart in the touring production of the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit.
The musical, based on the 1994, drag queen comedy film, “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” follows the guys as they travel through the Australian Outback searching for love and friendship. The bonus is they find more than they dreamed they would along the way. “Priscilla” features more than 20 pop hits and dance floor favorites, like “Material Girl,” “I Will Survive,” “It’s Raining Men,” and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”
Oscar winners Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel received Tony Awards for costume design when the show hit Broadway. But Gardiner told Zap2it the 500-plus over-the-top costumes could have been even more outrageous. “In all my experience,” says Gardiner, “you can never go too far.” Well, in Las Vegas there’s no such thing.
Tickets for “Priscilla” at The Venetian are on sale as of Wednesday (April 10).
