Olivier Award nominee Tony Sheldon, Tony Award® nominee Will Swenson (Hair) and Nick Adams (La Cage aux Folles) will lead the cast of the pre-Broadway North American company of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical, written by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, directed by Simon Phillips and choreographed by Ross Coleman. The spectacular new stage musical will begin performances at The Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto for a 12-week only, pre-Broadway engagement. Adapted from the Academy Award® winning film, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT THE MUSICAL is a heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends 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. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and featuring a score of dance-floor classics, PRISCILLA is a sensational journey to the heart of fabulous. Along with winning the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Costume Design for Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner, the musical was also nominated for Best New Musical and received the 2010 What’s On Stage Best New Musical Award.
