Editorial Reviews

Review

"Plenty of classic pop and disco hits have been thrown into the heady mix of the familiar and the fantastic." --Sunday Express (London)

"Priscilla pushes all the same buttons as the movie did, only with more great tunes!" --Daily Telegraph, Australia

Product Description

Like the stage production, the Original Broadway Cast Recording will be a sensational journey to the heart of fabulous!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequins and Feathers April 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sit down and smile for the next hour or so and visualize all the fun everyone is having listening to this exciting Cd from the wild and wonderful show.I saw it 2 weeks ago and the sequins are still in my hair!..What fun for all. That is what it all about and a story of the transvestite getting back to his son with his two drag queen friends..in the outback of Australia. Go along with it and you will have a wonderful time seeing and/or listening..you,too, will be dancing in the aisles!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Ride! August 10, 2011
By DeeDee
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This soundtrack has all the hits we remember and love from the disco era. When the radio starts "talking" I pop it in and sing along. A wonderful collection of my generation's oldies.

2.0 out of 5 stars All Chorus, Not enough Melody April 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While the show appears to be a visual spectacle, I find this soundtrack to be dull & uninspired. It worked when Baz Luhrmann created the 2001 version of "Moulin Rouge!" by using various pre_recorded songs, but he gave them a fresh new twist. Now we get to hear songs we already know, sung by groups of people in chorus fashion, with very little lead vocals. The few we get are not stand out voices. It seems that the three lead males are actually replaced by "three divas" as the liner notes indicate. Reminds me of "Little Shop of Horrors", which also worked since they were simply narrators & lookers on, but not central characters in the show. Apparrantly whenever the guys are performing drag, we get the "three divas" instead. Every so often we get the real guys & rewarding. Nick Adams appears to have a good Broadway show voice, but he isn't able to stand out as the songs he has to work with don't really allow for any range whatsoever. The show may be lots of fun, but as an "Original Broadway Cast" album this is not. I think it will be easily forgotten. It's merely a showcase of songs we already have heard rehashed in a boring & forgettable style, especially since most of it is with large groups of people singing together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dance and exercise music! April 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I got my mother a ticket to see this play on Broadway so as a thank you she purchased the soundtrack for me. It is a wonderful CD to exercise too! As I listen to it, I can just imagine my mother dancing in her seat while watching the play and know she really enjoyed it especially because of the music. The remake of the songs are done wonderfully and it's a very upbeat and fun CD. Get it even if you haven't seen the musical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priscilla queen of fun! March 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little in doubt when in New York in line to get a ticket for a show in Times Square: I am a big Broadway fan and really wanted to see the new "Rent", show I loved when on Broadway: but by the time I got to the window a very nice lady told me "Rent" was sold out: another show I wanted to see was "Spiderman", but also no seats available: she said to me. "I have a very good deal on Priscilla" . I doubted a while, but when I saw a very impatient lady behind me, I said ok, I'll take it. I didn't dislike the idea, cause I loved the movie, but usually I doubt the quality of a show taken from a movie. I was wrong! Priscilla queen of the desert is a lovely show, well written and full of fun and great music. Of course you don't have to expect a masterpiece, the music is a listing of great songs from the '80s, no original songs, but the performes are full of talent and the show rolls in front of you smoothly and quietly you don't want it to end when it ends! If you want to enjoy a night out and forget all about life and its problem, Priscilla is the cure and the original cast album is a good reminder of your night out in "fun".

I usually don't like musicals that cover pop songs, but I listened to the sample tracks and the cast truly made these pop-disco radio hits their own. Read more
