Priscilla – Queen of the Desert

Tonight was the third show in my 2012-2013 Orpheum Season Package. I must admit, ‘Priscilla: Queen of the Desert’ wasn’t one of the shows on this year’s docket that I was most excited about. I saw the movie years ago, and pretty all I remembered from it was a scene with ping pong balls (anyone know what I’m saying?). I can’t say that I loved the show, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. Its message of acceptance and love was touching, and I have a soft spot for any show to which cult fans show up in costume (even if those in costume at this particular show shocked me into wondering if I had accidentally walked into The Saloon across the street!). Overall, I would say it’s a sweet show, but save your money for ‘The Book of Mormon.’
