Stage and screen star Bette Midler will introduce the cast of Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical when they perform on "The Today Show" March 18.

The performance will air during the 8:30 half hour.

Midler is one of the producers of the drag-themed musical, which stars Tony Award nominee Will Swenson, Olivier nominee Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams "as the trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting road trip of a lifetime who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed," according to press notes.

The show features a score of disco-era classics and a libretto by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, based on the Academy Award-winning film "The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert." The show is directed by Simon Phillips and choreographed by Ross Coleman. Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell serves as production supervisor.

Priscilla is currently in previews at the Palace Theatre. Opening night is set for March 20. Visit priscillaonbroadway.com for more information and ticketmaster.com for tickets.
