Well, it might be Queen of the Desert. But this ain’t no desert…

Ooh, the campery of it all!

Should we be excited that Jason Donovan, the man who once successfully took The Face magazine to court for alleging that he was gay, got rave reviews in the opening of Priscilla Queen of the Desert last night? Well, not unanimous raves…

The Guardian compared the musical unfavourably with that other men-in-frocks show, La Cage Aux Folles, saying that it seems to be ‘as much about costumes as content’ while saying there was something ‘tasteless’ about a show that had as its emotional crescendo the coming true of a drag queen’s dream to sing a Kylie medley on top of Ayres Rock.

We would give you our considered opinion on the show… But we couldn’t be bothered to go.
