This spectacular show tells the story of three best friends on the wildest road trip ever. With over 500 dazzling costumes and a hit parade of songs including "It's Raining Men" and "I Will Survive," PRISCILLA promises the two happiest hours on Broadway!
PRISCILLA stars Tony Award-nominee Will Swenson, Tony Award-nominee Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams as the trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting road trip of a lifetime 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.
PRISCILLA was awarded a 2011 Tony Award for Best Costume Design for Academy Award® winners Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner's designs. The new hit musical was also honored with three Best Musical award nominations from the Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Award organizations.
