A Gay Ol' Time - Priscilla Queen of the Desert - Musical Review

Priscilla Queen of the Desert - Princess of Wales Theatre - Toronto, ON - **** (out of 5 stars)
Book by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, Directed by Simon Phillips
Runs in Toronto until Jan. 2nd 2011. Begins on Broadway on Feb. 28th 2011, Opens Mar. 20th 2011


I was going to title this Over-the-Top Downunder (or something), and avoid using the cliched sentence "Gay Ol' time", but after seeing the exuberantly energetic and very campy Priscilla Queen of the Desert musical, it's really the best way to describe it, in every sense of the word "gay". This happy happy HAPPY musical left me with a silly grin on my face from the moment I stepped into the glittery pink theatre right until even now as I think about the fluffy show. While the Australian jukebox musical, based on the (excellent) now-gay-camp-classic film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, doesn't try for anything deep, it knows exactly what it is, and on colourful platformed shoes, stands up to its glittery promise.

First opened in Australia, then London, a few more changes have been made for the North American audiences as Priscilla is brought to the stage, and while a road-trip movie doesn't easily lend itself to an easy transfer to the stage, Elliot and Scott load the show with so much camp, heart, and crass-drag-queen humour (as it can only be!), and Tom Chappel and Lizzy Garndiner (Oscar winners for the film's costumes) fit the actors into a fashion pageant of over-the-top frills that delight the eye, that you barely notice the thin storyline of 3 Sydney drag queens making their way to the middle of the desert to Alice Springs on a bus they've christened "Priscilla".

Will Swenson (Hair, 110 in the Shade) plays Tick/Mitzi, a drag queen who finally decides to go to Alice Springs to meet his son, from a wife of a life far left behind. Swenson, whose sexual swagger ignited his Berger in Hair, brings a nice masculine opposition within his Tick/Mitzi. Swenson's duality between the feminine Mitzi, and his attempt at being straight-acting butch Tick as he crosses the macho Australian desert, is wonderfully played out that manages to avoid caricature with a sweet tender self-inducing confliction. Swenson's voice sometimes wavers, as his deeper voice (or his attempt at an Australian accent while singing) doesn't seem to get him to some of the high notes required, but Swenson and his attempt to reunite with his son is genuinely heartwarming in the midst of the high-camp show.

Mitzi drags along Bernadette, an aging and retired drag queen, and Adam/Felicia, a young, nimble and ..."active" drag queen, off to perform at the casino where Mitzi/Tick's secret wife and son live, but first, they must survive the journey there together.

Tony Sheldon, who reprises his role as Bernadette from the Sydney and London production, is the oldest of the traveling trio, and comes with the quick quips and sharp tongue of a seasoned "showbiz" veteran, but with an addition lashing from enduing being a transgendered woman on top of it all. Sheldon nicely softens Bernadette from the more embittered version from the movie. Swenson's Tick/Mitzi may be our guide through this journey but Sheldon's Bernadette is definitely driving the bus here, and while his Bernadette is recovering from the death of her beloved "Trumpet", a young fling-of-a-husband, she finds new life and love in the most unlikeliest of places.

Meanwhile, Nick Adams plays Adam/Felicia with such zest and energy and literally seems to bound through the entire show on his muscular physique. His whole performance, from his dancing and physicality, to his gestures and facial reactions, to his beautiful singing voice and his hilarious comebacks, just fully engulfs who Adam/Felicia really is. And with all the gay bravado, Nick Adams' manages to show the cracks beneath all the makeup. With all of Adam/Felicia's antics, it's to Adams' credit that she still comes off as lovable and likable as he does, and you can believe the trio's eventual bonding despite some of the nastier insults they throw at each other.

Veteran Canadian actor C. David Johnson (Street Legal) is lovable as Bob, the mechanic, and his ad-libbing through a technical glitch on opening night ("well, they spent a lot of money on the bus!") sealed the deal! J. Elaine Marcos (A Chorus Line) was a riot as Cynthia, Bob's mail-order bride who comes with a surprise skill (yes, if you've seen the movie, they keep that hilarious/crass, if totally unnecessary scene). Nathan Lee Graham (Wig Out) werks it as Miss Understanding. And a game cast of Divas, Dishy Dancers and Drag Queens fills into the luscious costumes that parade throughout the show.

The catalogue of songs have been slightly changed from the movie (due to rights) or from the Australian and London production (apparently claiming they got the rights to songs they've always wanted, but also because Madonna is more famous than Kylie Minogue on these shores), and they're suitable known, catchy, and fit into the storyline just enough that we don't really question any of it as we get blinded by all the sequins and shininess emanating from the stage.

Incidentally, the Abba songs had to be replaced in the stage musical since they have their own little musical going on, but like Mamma Mia, Priscilla understands that it's truly a fluff and fanciful piece and just run with it (in high heels), only even gayer.

Oh and the bus. I haven't even spoken of Priscilla herself yet. She's quite the dazzling piece of stage machinery, but I did wish sometimes they could dress up the other scenes or the background a little more. Particularly the Ayers Rock scene which took place on an empty stage with no hint of being on top of a giant rock in the desert. It took me halfway through the scene before I realized it was THAT scene (and an important moment for an important line). (I do wonder if the set design in Toronto has been simplified for its short pre-Broadway run, as I've been told the London and Australian versions had more elaborate sets).

Still, Priscilla is quite a spectacle of a night that's all about the glitter and the glam, but with Swenson, Sheldon and Adams' driving us through the night, I found myself even slightly emotionally involved with a little bit of heart revealed beneath all those masking layers. While the show is certainly not going to give any life-changing revelatory moments, it sure will be able to help change and brighten your mood.

SYTYCDC3 - One

So You Think You Can Dance Canada - Season 3 - Finale - Eps. 324
Judges: Jean-Marc Généreux, Tré Armstrong, Blake McGrath, Luther Brown, Mary Murphy, Mia Michaels, Sergio Trujillo, Rex Harrington

Final four.

Here was My Final Ranking:
1. Denys
2. Amanda
3. Jeff
4. Janick

My Prediction:
1st: Jeff
2nd: Amanda
3rd: Denys
4th: Janick

But before we got the results, we get 2 hours of filler! With a reminder of the best dances of the season with the many great dancers (many who were cut too early), and the yammering by judges and hosts as a reminder of why our Canadian version is turning off a lot of people.

Top 21 Group Dance
Choreographed by: Sergio Trujillo
Song: "Flashdance What A Feeling" -
Grade: A

Nice to see Hani, Julia, Jera, Kirsten, Jesse again. All who were cut too early. And miss Charlene, Jonathan and Mackenzie.

And then they showed the judges picks of the season:

Amanda Cleghorn and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Salsa
Choreographed by: Gustavo Vargas
Song: "I Love Salsa" - N'Klabe
From: Top 4 - Week 9

Here's the video of Amanda and Denys' Salsa (via CTV):



Nathalie Heath and Mackenzie Green
Style: Hip-Hop
Choreographed by: Sho-Tyme
Song: "All I Do Is Win" - DJ Khaled feat. T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross
From: Top 20 - Week 2

This is when my love for Mackenzie was cemented and that he wasn't just a one week wonder.

Here's the video of Nathalie and Mackenzie's Hip-Hop (via CTV):



Kirsten Wicklund and Jera Wolfe
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Mandy Moore
Song: "Fireflies" - Ron Pope
From: Top 22 - Week 1

My realization that this Jera ballet/hip-hop dancer was not a one-trick pony and could actually be amazing. Sad that he never really got a chance to fully show us everything he's got when he was cut too early. And Kirsten was just lovely and also cut too early.

Here's the video of Kirsten and Jera's Contemporary (via CTV):



Janick Arseneau and Shavar Blackwood
Style: African Jazz
Choreographed by: Sean Cheesman
Song: "Dances with Wood/Baba" - Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, Sikiru Adepoju & Giovanni Hidalgo
From: Top 22 - Week 1

This is where I fell in love with Janick. Unfortunately she hasn't quite lived up to that since, but yet here she is in the Final 4. I don't hate Janick, but I feel she should be around the Top 8-10 range.

Here's the video of Janick and Shavar's African Jazz (via CTV):



Charlene Hart and Jeff Mortensen
Style: Hustle
Choreographed by: Maria Torres
Song: "That's Where The Happy People Go" - The Trammps
From: Top 18 - Week 3

It was a great spin by Jeff, and a dance that fits perfectly with his super smiley personality, but I felt that Charlene could do no wrong in all her partnered dances and here's just another example of her consistency.

Here's the video of Charlene and Jeff's Disco (via CTV):



Danielle Gardner and Sebastian Mersch
Style: Theatre
Choreographed by: Sean Cheesman
Song: "No Good Deed" - Idina Menzel from Wicked (Original Broadway Cast)
From: Top 20 - Week 2

A perfect piece for the adorable Sebastian and Danielle. And while Danielle managed to mature as the weeks went on, Sebastian had a great quirkiness to his dance, but didn't grow quite as fast as the others, but he had a good run and still always adorable.

Here's the video of Danielle and Sebastian's Theatre (via CTV):



Nathalie Heath and Mackenzie Green
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Blake McGrath
Song: "After Afterall" - William Fitzsimmons
From: Top 16 - Week 4

Mackenzie. Practically naked. Thank you Blake and wardrobe person. Thank you Mackenzie for dancing amazingly every week.

Nathalie, you're pretty hot yourself.

Here's the video of Nathalie and Mackenzie's Contemporary (via CTV):



Amanda Cleghorn and Jeff Mortensen
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Sabrina Matthews
Song: "Nowhere to Stand" - k.d. lang
From: Top 4 - Week 9

Who would have thought it would take an abusive character to bring out the best dance out of the usually sunny Jeff.

Here's the video of Amanda and Jeff's Contemporary (via CTV):



Janick Arseneau and Mackenzie Green
Style: Hip-Hop
Choreographed by: Luther Brown
Song: "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" - Busta Rhymes
From: Top 8 - Week 8

Seriously, how much do I love Mackenzie? Remember, he's a white boy contemporary dancer. But he's so fly!

Here's the video of Janick and Mackenzie's Hip-Hop (via CTV):



Claudia Primeau and Edgar Gilbert-Reyes
Style: Mambo
Choreographed by: Gustavo Vargas
Song: "La Reina" - La Lupe
From: Top 16 - Week 4

Love me some Edgar.

Here's the video of Claudia and Edgar's Mambo (via CTV):



Francis Lafreniere (from Season 1, and who still looks so F%$ken hot) proposes to Claudia live on air. Is this a SYTYCD first?


Top 21 Group Dance
Choreographed by: Bill T. Jones
Style: Theatre
Song: "Zombie" - from Fela! (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
From: Top 22 Results - Week 1






Danielle Gardner and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Sabrina Matthews
Song: "Highway of Heroes" - The Trews
From: Top 8 - Week 8

Danielle is fantastic here (which means of course she was cut that week). Luckily Denys survived the round with his excellent foray into Contemporary.

Here's the video of Danielle and Denys' Contemporary (via CTV):



Amanda Cleghorn and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Tango
Choreographed by: Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin
Song: "Grand Guginol" - Bajofondo
From: Top 22 - Week 1

And to think I thought Denys would be the first to be cut, only because Euro Ballroom guys never seem to make it past early rounds. So glad these two made it to the end!

Here's the video of Amanda and Denys' Tango (via CTV):



Top 12 Group Dance
Choreographed by: Mia Michaels
Style: Contemporary
Song: "Will I?" - from Rent (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
From: Top 12 Results - Week 6

My favorite piece from the season and probably one of my favorite dances EVER from this show.




New Dance:
Top 10 Group Dance
Choreographed by: Melissa Williams
Song: "Under Pressure" - Queen
Grade: A-

That was a cool group routine that utilized the Top 10 really well and had just enough unison movements that always make group routines look cool.


Top 4 Group Dance with Blake McGrath
Choreographed by: Mia Michaels
Song: "Relax" - Blake McGrath
Grade: B+

A little too much like Mia's Top 4 from Season 2 with "Sexy Back" but still fun. If not a little too much shameless plugging for Blake.

Though of the 4 dancers, the non-Contemporary dancer Denys stood out for me.

The four dancers interview each other but it's actually really cute seeing the four of them actually look like they get along. Also reminded me that both boys are Ukranian. And that Denys went to Juliard.

Amanda Cleghorn and Jeff Mortensen
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Stacey Tookey
Song: "Dancing" - Elisa
From: Top 8 - Week 8

Here's the video of Amanda and Jeff's Contemporary (via CTV):



Janick Arseneau and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Paso Doble
Choreographed by: Natalli Reznik and Francis Lafreniere
Song: "España Cañí" - Manhattan Pops Orchestra
From: Top 12 - Week 6

Denys. Rowr. He can tame me anyday.

Here's the video of Janick and Denys' Paso Doble (via CTV):



The Final Results

4th: Janick Arseneau

3rd: Jeff Mortensen

2nd: Amanda Cleghorn

And the WINNER IS: Denys Drozdyuk

WOOHOO!!! In the exact order I wanted too! I mean, again, I would have loved to see a Mackenzie vs Denys showdown at the end and I thought Charlene was going to be here as well giving the boys and Amanda a run for their money but for what it is, Canada actually got it right at the end.

So at this point, we've been 3 for 3 seasons on getting the winner right! Whew!

I think it's the most we've ever seen Denys smile! I love that he usually looks so serious with that oddball serious sense of humour! Even his reaction to his win was adorable! And that he goes back into his serious look and humility. Love Denys!

I loved seeing all the guest judges hug him. They all really looked so pleased. Loved Mary scream at him. And that Rex and Sergio and Jean-Marc all seemed to want to grab Denys' head (who doesn't?) and Mia truly looked pleased and proud!

YAY DENYS!

SYTYCDC3 - Four on the Floor

So You Think You Can Dance Canada - Season 3 - Final 4 Performance - Eps. 323
Judges: Jean-Marc Généreux, Tré Armstrong, Blake McGrath, Luther Brown

Final performance night already. Why am I not excited this year? It's like the show and CTV did everything they could do to make me lose interest.

Don't get me wrong. I still love the dancers and all, but between some poor judges picks, and then a quick switch that dumped half the dancers last week in one fell swoop (with no previous audience warning), leaving Mackenzie on the elimination dancefloor, one of my favorite shows is really trying me. Makes one long for Nigel Lythgoe again. And man do I miss Cat Deeley.

NOTE: The video links are incorrect until you no longer see this message.


Amanda Cleghorn and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Salsa
Choreographed by: Gustavo Vargas
Song: "I Love Salsa" - N'Klabe
Grade - Dance: A-
Grade - Girl: A
Grade - Boy: A

At this point, the top girl and top guy left in the competition and they make this Salsa sizzle. Simple as that.

Here's the video of Amanda and Denys' Salsa (via CTV):



Janick Arseneau and Denys Drozdyuk
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Nico Archambault and Wynn Holmes
Song: "Salvation" - Scanners
Grade - Dance: B+
Grade - Girl: B+
Grade - Boy: A

Didn't love the piece as much. Sorry Nico.

But Denys looked superb and outdanced Janick, despite this being her genre. The judges seemed to agree and praised Denys but gave some pointers to Janick.

Here's the video of Janick and Denys' Contemporary (via CTV):



Janick Arseneau and Jeff Mortensen
Style: Jazz Fusion
Choreographed by: Sean Cheesman
Song: "Come on Girl" - Taio Cruz ft. Luciana Caporoso
Grade - Dance: A-
Grade - Girl: A
Grade - Boy: A-

Didn't these two just do Jazz Funk two weeks ago? How is this different?

Judges loved it and thought it was clean, and while I admit that Sean's dance was fun and interesting as always, and Janick and Jeff did a beautifully clean dance in their solo moments, I found the tiny moments when they needed to connect was a bit shaky, though mainly on Jeff's part this time.

Here's the video of Janick and Jeff's Jazz Funk (via CTV):



Amanda Cleghorn and Jeff Mortensen
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Sabrina Matthews
Song: "Nowhere to Stand" - k.d. lang
Grade - Dance: A-
Grade - Girl: A
Grade - Boy: A

Um, who knew abuse could look so cool in dance form? I loved some of the powerful dance moves to convey the "abuse". Though it let Amanda looked loose and sloppy on purpose which is a shame since her lines are so beautiful, but she played the part perfectly with an amazing emotional intensity that was match with the usual smiley Jeff. This was a perfect piece for Jeff for his body's lines and strength and it helped to give him an opposing persona to fall into that lets him differentiate himself from his usual sunny and cherubic personality.

Here's the video of Amanda and Jeff's Contemporary (via CTV):



Top 4 Group Dance
Choreographed by: Stacey Tookey
Song: "Undone" - DeVotchKa (with The Hagerman Quartet)
Grade: A

Sorry to say but I found Janick got lost within that and I found myself noting the boys the most, and then Amanda.

The Final Roundup:

So the choreographers here really like to have the guys shirtless (or almost) in the dances, don't they? Not complaining. Just mentioning!

Ranking the Couples:
Best of the Night: Amanda and Jeff's Contemporary
2nd: Amanda and Denys' Salsa
3rd: Janick and Jeff's Jazz Fusion
4th - Worst of the Night: Janick and Denys' Contemporary

2nd: Amanda
