Guy approves of Priscilla musical

Guy Pearce has given his approval to the Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert musical, and said watching its New York premiere made him "emotional".

The King's Speech actor played flamboyant drag queen Felicia in the 1994 film, and said watching the stage show made him nostalgic.

He told the New York Post: "[I watched it] with a smile on my face and a tear in my eye."

He went on: "It was an emotional experience for me, not just from making the movie, but what the film represented."

Also in the star-studded audience were Joan Rivers and Bette Midler.

The stage show first opened in London in 2009.
