    The cast is Amazing & the leads dare I say are better than the ones I saw at The Palace in the West End. Special compliments to the stage/light design. And Hornchurch is not that far from Central London as I thought before. So I urged you to see this show ! from A critical Priscilla fan.

    I am one of the ensemble in “Priscilla” and I am just honoured to be in it! I think it is the most iconic and feelgood show this century and I am loving it. I have seen the show as well from the other side, and I still think it is wonderful, melodic and well put together. If ever I had the chance I would do it again.

    Such a great show , we went on Saturday19th May and bought more tickets for Monday 21st May. Thoroughly enjoyed the show , certainly one of the very best we have seen at the Queens Theatre and we’ve spent many great evenings at the Queens over the years. Many , many thanks (Time for “Return To The Forbidden Planet” to make an appearance I think). Paul Elliott
