Aww, man! This is LAME!

The West End adaptation of Priscilla Queen of the Desert is set to soon debut on Broadway. However, the musical's bosses are apparently concerned that the show's various Kylie Minogue references won't translate to American audiences, and now will be replaced with Madonna!

A source explains:

'Kylie’s not a household name in the States so they needed an equally fabulous gay icon for the show. Madonna was the obvious choice.'

Yes, but we LOVE Kylie in the States, too!

It works either way, but a bit of an unnecessary change, no?!

Boo!

    Madge Sucks!

    I love Kylie. I love the videos of hers that are directed by Michel Gondry (who also has directed Bjork Videos, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Green Hornet). I'm one of the many stateside girls who love her (I personally love her more than Madonna)… and I'm sure she has many stateside gay fans. And I'm sure there are some straight men out there who love her too. :)

    That's ridiculous "not a household name" stupid, stupid, stupid. Love Madonna and not the biggest Kylie fan but she will never be a household name if they never give her a chance to be! I bet ppl would love a fresh face and Kylie is sweet…

    They both have similar faces. Mad eyes. I've never seen Kylie perform or heard any of her songs that I know of, and don't want to.

    I used to be a huge Madonna fan, but after seeing Kylie live in London there's no comparison. Kylie is Live, Kylie is Cutting Edge and Kylie is the ultimate performer. Her staging is nothing like Madonna has ever done. Madonna and Gaga should take some pointers. If were talking about production, Kylie is the Queen.

    Hagdonna is a kunt !

    OMG why won't they give this woman a chance here its not fair they have silenced her for 20 plus years in the states now and its not wright. I'm form detroit and I love kylie I like Madonna but shes nothing compared to kylie. If they left Kylie"s name in the show people that don't know her name would here it in the show then check her out on the net to find out who they where talking about.Come on its common sense.

    The Broadway, U.S. version started here in Toronto, Canada (it just finished its run) We said the same thing: they should've kept it with Kylie (they should've kept it with ABBA as in the movie; but, with Mamma Mia, I suppose it was TOO much ABBA). Mind you, you'd be surprised how straight (and old) the audience is (at least here in Toronto!) They wouldn't know Kylie as much as they would Madonna.

    The modern performances of Queen of the Desert are sooooooo shit. honestly, so painfully unfunny.



  14. 14

    Grow up piggy. Producers have already played out the lines in dress rehearsals, I would believe, and are going on audience reaction.

    Re: stephenr – ahaha shut up. madonna is the best performer ever. kylie im sorry i have nothing against her but she is too doll for this insdustry. M is fierce. madonna loves kylie and kylie loves M like we all know and kylie said M is the queen and shes the princess but kylie doesnt ahve the fierceness that M has live. M burns the stage .and about gaga gaga is a wannabe

    and M is american. madonna is the most successful female artist ever. after 30 years her tours always break records and she performes for 90.000 ppl per night while kylie even in europe perofrmes for small audiences,that means the gay comunity still prefer M

    i saw the show in London with the original cast… most of the Kylie references were due to the fact that Jason Donovan played Tick (Mitzi). they kept making jokes that reminded everyone of Neighbours!!!

    Madonna !!! she's better than Whorlie Flopoque

    Re: stephenr – you have lost your mind



  21. 21

    Either would have been fine! Kylie is very well known in the gay community here. Madge is an obvious replacement, but since the story takes place in Australia Kylie would have made more sense.



  22. 22

    Kylie is awesome



  23. 23

    Meh. Weak. Kylie is Goddess.

    Re: M: – Kylie performed to the biggest audience ever at the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games! Kylie performed for more than 4 billion viewers with her rendition of “Dancing Queen” and “On A Night Like This”. She sold more than 60 million albums, , and has received notable music awards. She was awarded the order of the british empire ; by the queen and Ordre des Arts et des Lettres; by the prime minister of france. Her tours have always beeen inovative, breathtaking and record braking. She
    performed in huge venues all over the world. She survived brest cancer. She has always ben graceful, modest and a real clase act….. but i guess you are right she is just not fierce enough ??? get real



  25. 25

    at least kylie's music always had taste..cant say the same about madge who did so amny trash albums trying to reinvent herself it looked rediculous like with that american life album it was embarassing to watch and listen plus kylie is really hot and looks like a woman…madge is old and has a manly body



  26. 26

    I LOVEEE Madonna!! and I like her better than Kylie… but she wont ever make an impact if she's not given a chance to be named out there



  27. 27

    I like Madonna, but I LOVEEEEE Kylie!!!



  28. 28

    This is B.S. Madonna is a self-important skeleton who once made good music and now insists on making crap. LONG LIVE KYLIE.



  29. 29

    obviously the right thing to do!

    I saw Priscilla for the first time in Sydney & was blown away. I saw it again, then 3 times in London and subsequently once in Toronto. Being a Broadway queen, this beats SO much that I've seen on Broadway. The last time I volunteered to be dragged up on stage as well as Toronto. I was always paired up with a woman. I should have kept in the character of the play by insisting I get dragged up and paired up with a guy. Truly a GREAT musical!! The Sydney production was the most generous with the pong pong balls & I wish they had kept Kylie in the North American version instead of Madge.



  31. 31

    PS: I saw Madonna live…it was ok. I've seen Kylie twice …AMAZING!!



  32. 32

    sorry that is bloody stupid, who cares if KYLIE isn't a HOUSE HOLD name in the States….its an AUSTRALIAN MUSICAL and KYLIE IS AUSTRALIA'S BIGGEST GAY ICON and the whole musical has references to KYLIE etc….why should the production change the references just for the freaking STATES….bloody stupid…..KYLIE ROCKS AND THE MUSICAL WILL NOT BE AS GOOD NOW
