Featuring a classic collection of dance-floor hits spanning the past three decades, from anthems "It's Raining Men" and "I Will Survive" to beloved songs associated with Elvis Presley, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Tina Turner, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical: Original Broadway Cast Recording is a veritable history of dance music that tells the story of a trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting adventure who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed of.
Adapted from the Academy Award® winning film The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical, is written by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott. Direction is by Simon Phillips, choreography is by Ross Coleman, musical supervision and arrangements are by Stephen 'Spud' Murphy and set design is by Brian Thomson. Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner have re-created their Academy Award® winning costume designs, which were originally designed for the film. Lighting is designed by Nick Schlieper and sound design is by Jonathan Deans. BAFTA Award winning make up design is recreated by Cassie Hanlon.
On Broadway, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical stars Olivier Award nominee Tony Sheldon, Tony Award® nominee Will Swenson and Nick Adams leading a company of 27.
"Priscilla pushes all the same buttons as the movie did, only with more great tunes!" --Daily Telegraph, Australia

I listen to the soundtrack many times and saw this on stage 2 times. A great show and soundtrack as well. This is a must for your music collection especially if you like musicals.Published on January 24, 2014 by Greger
