Australian singer Jason Donovan, who came to fame by way of the famed soap opera “Neighbors” (with co-star Kylie Minogue), just landed in Israel for his starring role in “Priscilla Queen of the Desert.”
The Aussie actor and singer, who now lives in London, said he loves being on the beach and plans on taking a “dive in the Mediterranean” each morning of his stay at the Tel Aviv Hilton.
The play, being performed in Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtachim Arena from July 4 through July 9, is part of a world tour featuring Donovan.
It’s a comic, colorful musical based on the film “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,” featuring familiar pop songs and telling the story of two drag queens and a transgender woman on a road trip to perform at a resort in a remote Australian town.
In a radio interview on Monday, Donovan praised Israel’s “liberal” society, and said that was why he was bringing the play here.
