Review - 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert' at the Palace Theatre 2009

Our critics rating: 

What the popular press had to say....

"I welcome it with open arms and a glad rag-bag of positive adjectives...ingenious adaptation"
Nicholas De Jongh for The Evening Standard

"This stage adaptation takes the road-movie concept and translates it, fairly successfully, to the stage."
Paul Vale for The Stage

"It is gaudy, garish and loud and seems to be as much about costumes as content...everything in the stage version is underscored and overstated."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"There’s energy, fun, tunefulness and, above all, the most outrageous swirl of costumes that I...have yet encountered."
Benedict Nightingale for The Times

"A juke-box musical format without much wit or cleverness" and also saying the show "is slick, well-organised and fairly enjoyable".
Michael Coveney for The Independent

"Wildly entertaining...hugely touching as well as entertaining... The fastidious and the squeamish should avoid this show like the plague. Everyone else will have a terrific drag ball."
Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

Looking for the best seats...
