Priscilla Queen of the desert

Saw Priscilla at Artscape tonight and I was blown away. An extravaganza of sound, light, costumes and superb choreography. Loved it! Absolutely wonderful!

This is a must see production. The entire experience was just sublime. Every moment in the theater was breath taking. The show tells a very deep story of life and all that it can make us. It is a MUST SEE show, and it is very well worth every cents spent on the show. To each and every person involved... More

Just saw a great show here, Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Had lunch at the restaurant there - the food was tasty & reasonably priced. The theatre is comfortable, great view from any of the seats there. BUT, at interval I went out to get some water & sweeties. Well! I gave the attendant R50 for a 500ml bottle of... More

Excellent... this production is absolutely amazing. We had the opportunity to watch the show last night. The show, the cast and the set are absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend this to both the local and international guests looking for high quality entertainment.

Many many years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Michael Jackson live in concert which we will no longer have this privilege. When a friend booked tickets for this show, I had mixed thoughts as I went as apprehensive how close this show would be to the original. The audience was fairly integrated which is unusual but refreshing sight... More

I have watched theatre productions in NYC, London and now Cape Town as well. This production of Annie is beautiful and rivals the productions abroad. Well done to the cast! Such exuberance! The staff at Artscape were also all incredibly friendly and helpful.

The Artscape theatre is a good modern theatre with comfortable seating and easy access. The box office is a little obscurely located (downstairs!) and not sign posted well. As with most theatres in the world, leg room is limited if you're tall. Annie was an excellent show - certainly on a par with broadway and west end shows. Do go... More

We had a lovely experience at the Artscape. The musical Annie is a superb production and we enjoyed every minute of it. The queues at the bathrooms are long during breaks, it is advisable to go before the show start.
