Priscilla The Musical ( click here for video of the new Broadway Musical )
Aboriginal Man: So... You actually make money by dressing up like a woman?
Tick: Oh, sure. You can make a fine living in a pair of heels.
Summer. August 1994 I was living in Albuquerque, NM. A friend of mine calls and invites me to go the movies. I asked him what movie.
"The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"
I hadn't at this point heard of the movie but being a queen and living in the desert-loving adventure-and having one of my favorite Aunties being named Priscilla I thought how Fabulous is this gonna be. And I was right. When you need to laugh, listen to great music, pick up some great one line zingers, enjoy fabulous clothing, get lost for 104 minutes, or simply learn a new way to play ping-pong then rent this movie.
I give it 5 FABS!!!
Tag Line from IMDb:
She's back... Looking as gorgeous and outrageous as ever in a brand new frock.
Finally, a comedy that will change the way you think, the way you feel, and most importantly... the way you dress.
And it did.
Some of my favorite quotes are:
Bernadette: No, I'll join this conversation on the proviso that we stop bitching about people, talking about wigs, dresses, bust sizes, penises, drugs, night clubs, and bloody Abba!
Tick: Doesn't give us much to talk about then, does it?
Bernadette: [to Felicia] That's just what this country needs: a cock in a frock on a rock.
Mitzi: [to Felicia] You know, there are two things I don't like about you, Felicia... your face. So how 'bout shutting both of them?
Tick: [to Felicia] Is it true when you were born the doctor turned around and slapped your mother?
Tick: [to Felicia and Bernadette] Aren't we fabulous?
Starring. Hugo Weaving ... Tick / Mitzi
Guy Pearce ... Adam / Felicia
Terence Stamp ... Bernadette
Enjoy the trailer and then watch or re-watch the movie. You'll be glad you did!
