Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - The Musical has a book by Australian film director-writer Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, using well-known pop songs as its score. Adapted from Elliott's 1994 Oscar-winning film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the musical is the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of over-the-top costumes, extraordinary headdresses and a hit parade of dance floor favorites, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS.
The Musical follows two drag queens and a transsexual (Tick, Adam, and Bernadette), who buy a run-down old bus (they call it Priscilla) and set out on a road trip across the Australian Outback when one of them, Tick, is invited by his ex-wife to perform his drag show at her far-away resort. However, Tick is hesitant to tell his friends, Bernadette (a former performing icon who’s best days are behind her) and Adam (a rambunctious young troublemaker), his own personal reasons for taking the trip. During their journey, the trio encounters an array of Australian citizens, some of who aren’t receptive to their lifestyle, including incidents of homo and transphobia, while widening comfort zones, finding new horizons, and strengthening their own friendship.
Shows are at Eureka Theatre, 215 Jackson St., (at Battery St.) SF, CA 94111 – Embarcadero BART

Humphry Slocombe - San Francisco’s Award-Winning Ice Cream purveyor creates a limited-edition ice cream flavor to celebrate Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - The Musical. Priscilla’s Tim Tam Slam (Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream, Chocolate Chips, and Crushed Tim Tam Cookies) will be available at both Humphry Slocombe locations June 1 - 4, 2017 (2790 Harrison St. and 1 Ferry Building, SF). 
Free Ice Cream will be served opening night Thurs. June 1, 2017.
Cast Members from Priscilla Queen if the Desert – The Musical will be making personal appearance during June 2017. Dates and store locations to be announced.
The creative dep’t. at Humphry Slocombe based this limited engagement flavor Priscilla’s Tim Tam Slam on the wildly popular Australian biscuit (cookie) the Tim Tam. Tim Tams have been a part of Australian tea time since 1964 and we love them as is, but like the ladies riding Priscilla across the desert outback, our favorite way to enjoy them is far more creative. Simply bite off opposite corners of the cookie, and use it like a straw for hot coffee or tea. Once the cookie is filled with coffee, pop the whole thing in your mouth! Priscilla’s Tim Tam Slam.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGT TIME at Golden Gate Theatre Jun 27–Jul 23, 2017

The acclaimed National Theatre production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is “the most inventive new show on Broadway” (New York Post). Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs this “dazzling” (Associated Press) adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens that brings Mark Haddon’s internationally best-selling novel to “extraordinary” life (TIME Magazine).

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

Called “one of the most fully immersive shows ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is a record-breaking theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
