Nice to meet you Mr Hanger....
The musical, taken from the 1994 Stephan Elliott film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, tells the story of drag queens travelling through the Australian desert to put on a cabaret show. Working beside Phillips is the costume designer Lizzy Gardiner, who won an Oscar for her work on Elliott's film, the Tony Award-winning production designer Brian Thomson and the seasoned choreographer Ross Coleman. Priscilla opens on at the Lyric Theatre at Sydney's Star City casino on October 7.
The studio buzzed into life when the drag queens sauntered in from the harsh sunshine. To a blaring disco track, Freeda Corset swooped about in red sequins. Portia Turbo sashayed and sang along, while the frighteningly tall Verushka Darling primped across the floor in a one-legged leopard-print leotard. Outside, the drag queens were forthcoming about everything.
So what did they wear beneath all that clinging lycra to ensure shapely curves?
"Well, I just pinch my cheeks and walk out the door," Darling purred, but Turbo had the final word.
"But you can't see them because she's wearing clothes."
Oy! When I look, I see that Mr Stillwater also has no profile - but comes from that other place! Hmmmmmmmmm.......

You guys do camp way better than the Americans.
I used to drink with a friend at the 'Bottoms Up Bar' at the Rex Hotel in Sydney's Kings Cross. Queer as ****, my friend. But... next door was a sub-branch of the ex-servicemans association... I used the toilets there, didn't really want to see what goes on in a gay-bar toilet... in theory, the old diggers should have been turning up to bash the pooftahs on a regular basis... should have also had the coppers turning up to close the place down as well*... never happened. Amazing.
I seem to recall one of the most macho men in the movie was attracted to one of the more glam men who cross-dressed
Well, he wasn't cross-dressed , the implication was that 'he' had gone all the way...
