Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

My good friend Marius recommended me to go see the Musical "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", based (of course) on the movie titled the same, which is showing in the West End--London's theater zone, sort of like the New York's Broadway, only better. Since Marius' recommendations have always proved to be good, I decided to give it a go and head off to the Palace Theater, where Priscilla is Playing.

The Palace Theater is actually quite a small venue, it can accommodate somewhere around 2,00 people I believe, which is a good thing, considering you can still get a cheap ticket and get a good place.

The musical itself is just absolutely brilliant!! I've always loved theater, but there's something about Musical theater that just thrills me completely and Priscilla was no exception. Everything from the cast to the production was wonderful, including the wardrobe and, particularly, the bus--Oh my word, was the bus fantastic! All in all, it was almost 3 hours full of good fun, wittiness, entertainment and loads of laughter. I'd totally recommend it if you are already in or planing to come to London--you won't regret it.

So, before someone discretely let me know I wasn't allowed to use my camera inside the theater, I was able to record some footage as well as take a couple of photos. I thought "Go West" would be appropriate to record since I like the song and the performance was awesome. Even though I got this with my little point&shoot Canon SD940, I think it's a good quality video, you know, considering, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
