THE SCREENING ROOM: Priscilla's Luke Mannikus Goes Behind the Scenes at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Video)
By Michael Gioia
Luke Mannikus, who plays Benji in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, performed in this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Here, the young Broadway actor took the camera behind-the-scenes to document his experience.
In honor of the upcoming Kid's Night on Broadway held in February, Givenik.com handed over a flipcam to Mannikus to document his experience as a child actor on the Broadway stage.
At the parade, Tony Award nominee Tony Sheldon joined his Priscilla co-stars, Will Swenson and Nick Adams, for a mashup of "I Love the Nightlife" and "I Will Survive." Mannikus shows the rehearsal process for the musical number as well as last minute preparations on Thanksgiving morning.
