Bad, mad and totally glorious!

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

New Theatre, Oxford

Tuesday, April 1

AT the start of this show three divas in silver lamé ballgowns and auburn beehives descend from the rafters on wires, and hang there suspended over the stage, belting out It’s Raining Men in full Gospel throttle.

If we were the congregation of a Deep South Baptist church we would be on our feet, doing an impersonation of a gang of whirling dervishes. But we’re not in the Deep South, we’re an audience in Oxford, and we are all still terribly British so the spontaneous hand-clapping and toe-tapping is about as wild as it’s going to get.
