Playlist: 10 songs from ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’

What’s a musical (about a drag artist and his two friends) without a few anthems originally belted by sassy, lusty woman singers?

Based on the 1994 cult film, “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” is a road trip story that struts in stilettos to a disco beat. Plus a handful of smouldering rock ballads.

It’s hard to decide what’s the real star of the show – the Tony Award-winning costumes (designed by the same team who won the Oscar for the film), the bus the characters travel in (which features a humongous sequinned pump perched on top of it), or these catchy, ageless songs.

We recommend you throw glitter to the wind, let your wig down, and just enjoy!
