Direct from the West End and starring Jason Donovan, the feel-good international hit sensation Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical is coming to Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena from July 4 through 9.

Based on the popular 1994 film of the same name, Priscilla Queen of the Desert follows two drag queens and a transsexual who buy a run-down old bus (they call it Priscilla) and set out on a road trip across the Australian Outback when one of them, Tick (played by Donovan), is invited by his ex-wife to perform his drag show at her far-away resort. During their journey, the trio encounters an array of Australian citizens, some of who aren’t receptive to their lifestyle, while strengthening their own friendship.
