It's time for my first theatre review of 2020, and I'm kicking off the new decade by heading Down Under with the dazzling cult hit Priscilla, Queen of the Desert at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre.
Ladies, gentlemen, and those who haven’t made their mind up yet…you are in for one hell of a ride! This is a production with both soul and sole.
