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.

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!

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.

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".

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.

The broadway production is amazing. The costumes, the drag, the camp. It's a package deal. When I first saw the song choices, I wondered why did they pic these songs? They were not in the original movie version. However, all of the song choices fit perfectly in the production. They all make sense and sound great as well. I love this CD. It's reliving the musical every time I play it.

... is a question that many people who don't live on or near New York City often ask when an original cast album comes out. Often, context and seeing a musical adds much to the enjoyment of the music. It wasn't until I saw Wicked (2003 Original Broadway Cast), Billy Elliot: The Musical (Original Cast Recording), and Avenue Q (2003 Original Broadway Cast) that I really began to love the music. That's not the case for the new cast album, "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert."

This musical celebrates the best of disco-ish pop music that's infectious to listen to, and fun as well. If you are a fan of the movie, The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert (Extra Frills Edition) then you'll know that music played an important part of the story, especially ABBA. However, in its latest American incarnation, the songs chose have quite a range, from the disco era MacAuthur Park, to pop icon Madonna. I worried that the songs selected would somehow not fit, after all, how powerful is the opening to the movie Charlene's "I've Never Been to Me".

Fear unfounded. The music fits (how so is a bit of a mystery since I haven't seen it yet), although if you know the movie, you can imagine how it fits. One of my favorite songs on the disk "I Love the Night Life" seems to start with the lovely lady in the bar Shirley singing a drunk version of the song.
