500 dresses, 200 hats and lots of laughs
hooked. All three also have incredible voices and are fantastic performers.
The standard of singing in this musical, from each and every single cast member, is without a doubt one of the highest I have ever seen.
While the musical tackles some deep subjects and does have some emotional moments, it is never too long until there is a highenergy number or a laughout-loud gag to put a smile back on your face, which works well because you have gone out for a night of entertainment after all.
The set was fantastic with its disco balls, bright lighting and of course the main feature, Priscilla the bus, which was done very effectively. However, one of the best things about this musical is the larger-thanlife costumes. I seriously had a case of costume envy. Each production of Priscilla requires a whopping 500 costumes, 200 hats, 100 wigs, 150 pairs of shoes and a mountain of mascara.
When I spoke to Jason Donovan ahead of the show coming to Bucks, he said the costume changes were a killer, and now I can see why.
Overall Priscilla is a highly entertaining show, jam packed with laugh after laugh, huge hits, mesmerising costumes and an extremely talented cast.
It is without a doubt one of the best musicals I have ever seen – and I’ve seen quite a few.
The UK tour continues until April 2016.
