Priscilla Queen of the Desert: A Fun, Fresh, and Campy Musical Adventure
July 14 @ 8:00 pm - July 15 @ 8:00 pm
Priscilla Queen of the Desert comes to Park Slope’s Old Stone House & Washington Park this July, the perfect respite on a hot summer night. Directed by Piper Theatre co-founder John P. McEneny, this fabulous, gender-bending musical is a hit parade of dance floor favorites including “It’s Raining Men,” “I Will Survive,” “Hot Stuff,” and “I Love the Nightlife,” that will make it impossible for you to remain sitting. Based on the smash-hit movie, it not only rocks and makes you laugh, but its characters embody the schism behind some of today’s headlines. Its themes of transgender rights, homophobia, and gay parenting have contemporary resonance, as does the transposition of its original Australian setting to Arizona. Known for high quality Shakespeare, off-beat musical revivals including Xanadu, Psycho Beach Party, and a knockout production of Sweeney Todd, called “creepy, delightful, masterful, and thoroughly entertaining,” Piper has thrilled audiences since 2000. “We are committed to free, innovative and risk-taking theater,” says McEneny.
