Direct from the West End and starring Jason Donovan, the feel-good international hit sensation Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical is coming to Edinburgh for one week only!
Winner of 4 WhatsOnStage.com awards, including Best New Musical, and based on the smash-hit movie, Priscilla is the heartwarming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they had ever dreamed of. Jason Donovan stars as Tick, the role he originated in the West End.
With a dazzling array of outrageous Olivier and Tony award-winning costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites including It’s Raining Men, I Will Survive, Hot Stuff, Finally, Boogie Wonderland, Go West, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and I Love The Nightlife, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS! Priscilla is ‘Hugely entertaining... insanely glitzy’ (Daily Telegraph).
