The sparkly and glittery ladies (and gents) of Broadway’s Priscilla Queen of the Desert sing their disco swan song at Broadway’s Palace. The jukebox musical, littered with dance floor classics like “I Will Survive,” “I Love the Nightlife,” “Shake Your Groove Thing” and “MacArthur Park,” currently stars Nick Adams and Tony nominees Will Swenson and Tony Sheldon as three drag queens who take a trip through the Australian outback on a party bus named Priscilla.

Million Dollar Quartet, one of those rare Broadway-to-Off-Broadway transfers, ends its run at New World Stages.
