Priscilla Queen of the Desert to Close?

Rumours blazed this morning after a Priscilla cast member tweeted that the show will be closing after Christmas. Cast member Newley Aucutt sent the tweet pictured below at lunchtime today causing an instant reaction from fans of the show.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert opened at London’s Palace theatre in March 2009 and has played to sell out houses and great reviews since.

I have seen the show a number of times and know that it has great value to a lot of fans. Indeed, when I blogged about favourite West End actors, Oliver Thornton, a long time Priscilla cast member, came top.

I know I will be sad to see this show go and I’m sure many others will as well. Sadly the rumour was confirmed by other cast members shortly after Newley’s original tweet. Keep your eyes on the blog for dates.

The West End won’t be the same without the giant shoe 😦
