Priscilla Queen of the Desert closed on Broadway on this date in 2012. Earlier that year Playbill.com offered a two-show day at work and play with cast member Ellyn Marie Marsh, who balanced the rigorous show schedule with her duties as mother to then-3-year-old Lola.



Marsh offered readers an extensive glimpse at her day, beginning promptly at 7:30 AM in order to maximize mother-daughter time before heading off to the Palace Theatre for a two-performance Sunday.

See how the family fits playtime, breakfast, band practice and a trip to the street fair into just a few short hours... then accompany Marsh to work and meet the guys and gals (and other) who inhabit the world of Priscilla.
