Rockit at QUO – Special PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT Event, 3/11
by BWW News Desk
Enthusiastic fans of Tony and Brandon’s signature soirees are advised to tuck a bit of Broadway into their Friday night – Rockit’s March 11th show will find them “Oo-ing and Ah-ing” at the splendors of critically acclaimed Broadway production, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert.” Sure to be an electrifying night, the bill promises performances by lead Nick Adams, featuring dance floor classics from the story’s on-stage program, presented in conjunction with Quo’s top tier sound and light system.
Based on the 1994 Academy AwardÂ® winning Australian film “The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” the musical adaptation follows three queens across Australia in their chariot, a tour bus named Priscilla, as they venture on a road trip to meet a job awaiting them in the town of Alice Springs. The show’s Broadway debut stars Olivier Award nominee Tony Sheldon (“Bernadette”), Tony AwardÂ® nominee Will Swenson (“Tick”/ “Mitzi”) and Nick Adams (“Adam”/”Felicia”), all of whom are putting the final touches on the special performance, gearing up to strut their stuff on the stage at Rockit.
With noteworthy engagements scheduled weekly at Rockit and its Saturday night counterpart, Club 57, FV Events remains at the forefront of gay nights out in Manhattan. Despite the season’s harsh cold, week after week loyal patrons are planted firmly in line, awaiting great music and the guarantee of a night they will not soon forget.
The event takes place on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 10 PM at ROCKIT at QUO, 511 W 28th Street
(Btwn. 10th & 11th Aves.)
