To the theatre daaahling…

Outside the Palace Theatre....shooooooooeeees!

Outside the Palace Theatre....shooooooooeeees!

A trip to London should always include a jaunt down to the West End for a spot of theee-Aye-tar, daahling!  So M and I headed into the throngs for a spot of Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical.  Based on the film of the same name, it starred Jason Donovan in the role of Tick.  He was fantastic.  The man can do an excellent camp man, sing, dance and all in high heels.  And he even threw in a very funny  joke about fancying Scott in Neighbours.

Platform shoes.  Magnificent, completely over the top costumes.  Flying divas with swan wings.  Half naked men in hotpants.  Outrageous wigs.  More feather boas than you could shake a stick at.   Show tunes. Uncouth jokes.  Drag queens.  A large disco pink bus.

Humungeous mirror Balls.

Shiney!

Shiney!

What more could a girl ask for?

*delighted sigh*

    I like the fact that the original Priscilla film stars Agent Smith from the Matrix, the amnesiac in Memento, and General Zod from Superman II.

  7. OOOOH! Now I want to go. Some of the best times of my misspent youth were spent at drag shows. This should be right up my alley.

      @ Silverstar > a friend says I *am* a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body. I take it as a compliment.

          Dais, you know this, but you rock my world! YAY for drag queens. I think I’m the only girl in CT who was invited on the catwalk at the tranny fashion show during pride one year. I haven’t done that in ages. *muses*…now, there’s an idea.

    you could take your drinks inside with you.
