REVIEW: Priscilla Queen of the Desert at MK Theatre

Priscilla Queen of the Desert Review 

This performance really was a spectacle and a proper feel-good show. With outrageous costumes and brilliant dance floor classics, it was such a fun, lively experience, with many of the audience dancing along too.

With Neighbours heartthrob Jason Donovan as Tick, he really stood out as a great actor. Having performed in Priscilla Queen of the Desert before, I felt like he really knew what he was doing, and he created a very believable character.

Based on the smash-hit movie, this glitzy show follows the adventure of three drag queens as they drive across Australia on the search for love and friendship. The three main characters, played by Jason Donovan, Simon Green and Adam Bailey, gelled really well together, and the relationships between them felt very natural to watch. Not forgetting to mention their costumes, which were everything I’d hoped for and more… Very glitzy, very crazy and very funny!

With dance floor classics such as ‘I Will Survive’, ‘Hot Stuff’, ‘Boogie Wonderland’ and ‘Go West’, this was a very glamorous, jazzed-up performance. The audience loved these hits, and the dancers were so impressive and extremely well-rehearsed. The three ‘Divas’, Lisa-Marie Holmes, Laura Mansell and Catherine Mort, who did a lot of the singing, had such amazing voices. The other actors would often mime to the Divas’ voices in a very comical way - definitely not to be missed.

If you fancy an evening of fun, glamour, and a lot of laughs, this is definitely a show for you. Please note this performance does recommend individuals viewing are ages 15 years and over. Tickets available: atgtickets.com.
