Hey girl hey!
The floor of the New York Stock Exchange is getting turned into a disco today as Bette Midler’s production of the Tony Award winning hit musical Priscilla Queen Of The Desert is taking OVER! The cast of the show will be performing a medley of hits featuring the Priscilla “Diva” trio at the annual New York Stock Exchange Christmas Tree Lighting.
If you are in the area, make sure you swing by to see the festivities. For the first time, traders will be invited to the lighting, with hot coco and carolers in the area to delights passersby. Santa will even making an appearance at 5 P.M.
But really, who needs all that when Priscilla is in the house! If we could fly out there right now, we would!

Bette Midler was spotted checking out the Broadway show Priscilla Queen of the Desert Saturday night and a reader exclusively told PerezHilton.com that she was rocking out!
The reader says she was singing and dancing along to the show, but was also watching the audience very closely to see what their reactions are. (She's one of the producers of the show!)
Bette didn't have time to chat with fans though and apparently jumped from her seat and booked it to the backstage area during intermission.
That's okay, Bette. We know you're a busy lady!
We would just LOVE to hang out with her one day!

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?!

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will be coming to Broadway next spring starring Tony Sheldon and Will Swenson.
The show will play 12 weeks in Toronto before migrating over to the Great White Way.
Priscilla tells the story of three drag performers in the Australian Outback and Sheldon starred in both the original Aussie version and the West End production.
Sounds good to us!
Are U a Priscilla fan?
