1. Priscilla Queen of the Desert - 33%
The glitter, the costumes, the performances—what’s not to miss about the disco-themed musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert. This tale of three friends crossing the Australian Outback provided fans with a nightly excuse to party at the Palace Theatre and treated theatergoers to star-making performances by Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams as well as a fun, new side to star Will Swenson. The musical played its final performance on June 24.
2. Anything Goes - 25%
As Reno Sweeney, Stephanie J. Block joins an elite club of Broadway belters who won acclaim for the role including Ethel Merman, Patti LuPone and Sutton Foster. This revival features an amazing tap number and the incredible vocal stylings of Ms. Block. Check it out at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre before it heads to sea on August 5.
3. Sister Act - 11%
Raven-Symone is truly “fabulous baby” as Deloris Van Cartier in the musical Sister Act. Fans will be sad to say goodbye to the feel-good musical about a disguised nightclub singer that aids a group of singing nuns. Join the holy choir before their last gig on August 26.
