First National Tour of ‘Priscilla Queen of the Desert’ Comes To St. Louis

The first national tour of Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical has made its way to the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis.

The musical features a trio of friends who take a road trip aboard a battered bus throughout the Australian outback.  Along the way, the three drag queens from Sydney encounter episodes of discrimination and heartbreak.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical opens with “It’s Raining Men” and has other disco favorites, as well as songs such as “Material Girl” and “MacArthur Park.”

Host Steve Potter talked with lead actors Wade McCollum (Tick/Mitzi) and Scott Willis (Bernadette).

The musical is the most successful Australian musical of all time and had its world premiere in Sydney in 2006.  It was adapted from the 1994 Academy Award® winning film.  There are more than 500 costumes.
