Priscilla Queen of the Desert

".... but vocally the night is owned by the divas. Hannah Knapp-Jenkins, Emily Welter, and Melissa Fleming rock the joint with three-part harmony that rises above the norm and into the marvelous. They are excellent." - AXS

"Also turning in strong performances were Hannah Knapp-Jenkins, Emily Welter, and Melissa Fleming as the Divas, a “Greek chorus” whose very strong vocals provided great support throughout the show." - Seattle Gay Scene

"The voices are uniformly good.... A lot more punch comes from the trio/chorus of Divas (Hannah Knapp-Jenkins, Emily Welter and Melissa Fleming)." - Kitsap Sun

"In order to keep the feel of a traditional drag performance with lip-syncing, the show utilizes 3 “Divas” (Hannah Knapp-Jenkins, Emily Welter, and Melissa Fleming) who sing many of the disco classics that the queens then use for their performances.  It’s a fun conceit that allows these three women to show off their singing chops with the queens strutting their stuff and highlighting the theatricality of the art of drag." - janessajaye.com
