Musical!? Some crazy teenies jumping and singing on a stage? Reminding you of “Highschool Musical”. No thanks, not interested! Yes, some people would maybe respond like this. But this time it is different. The musical “Priscilla – Reina del Desierto” is coming to Madrid in October, and it will enthrall all of us.
The première is on 2nd October 2014 at the New Teatro Alcalá in Madrid. In the following we present you the most important information about this wonderful musical. More information about Priscilla, El Musical will you find here.
The New Teatro Alcalá
Since its foundation in 1927, the theatre has produced a lot of important national and international artists. Furthermore, it is often connected with the biggest success of the Spanish musical scene as „Jesuschristo Superstar“ and „Grease“. With 1.240 seats, the theatre is the only one in Madrid – except El Lope de Vega – which is able to host a musical as “Priscilla, El Musical”.
You haven’t heard about Proscilla yet? No problem, we give you a short summary of the plot.
The musical is based on the film of the same name Priscilla Queen of the Desert (1994). It is about two drag queens and a transsexual buying a run-down old bus and calling it Priscilla. The trio goes on a road trip across the Australian Outback and meets some Australian citizens who are not all receptive to their lifestyle. However, it is after all a film about three friends whose friendship is put to the test.
If the plot has not convinced you yet, the soundtrack will definitely do. Here are just some of the songs in the muscial:
“I WILL SURVIVE”
“I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE”
“DON’T LEAVE ME THIS WAY”
“WHATS LOVE GOT TO DO…”
“LIKE A PRAYER”
“LIKE A VIRGIN”
“ITS RAINING MEN”
And many more besides…
Did we convince you? This musical is definitely more than some teenies jumping and singing on the stage. So, do not miss this fantastic event, and get you a ticket for October in Madrid!
