Review: Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

One Sentence Summary: Three Australian drag queens take a road trip through the desert and pop music ensues.

Trivia: Based on the 1992 movie by the same name.

Best thing about it: it's high energy, and if you decide not to care that it's bubblegum, it's also super fun.

What they could change: We saw the Auckland production a few years ago and enjoyed it more. This one was just a little too slick, the one-liners allowed pauses for laughter and unfortunately broke the illusion of reality a bit too often.

We left thinking: It was nice to see something from our side of the planet.

Verdict: An enjoyable night, but if you're in the mood for depth, try something else. 7 / 10
