2AM’s Jo Kwon Set to Make Musical Return
2AM member Jo Kwon is set to star in “Priscilla”, a musical adaptation of the hit movie “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.”
A spokesperson for Seol&Company, the production group behind the musical, confirmed the news, saying, “Jo Kwon will be appearing in ‘Priscilla’ from July 3, at the LG Arts Center in Seoul.”
The comedy musical tells the tale of three cross-dressing men who take a life-changing journey together across the Australian outback. Among the musical numbers included are versions of hit songs from the 1980s and 1990s, originally performed by artists such as Madonna and Cyndi Lauper.
Jo Kwon will play the role of Adam, one of the three male leads. Adam, a cheeky troublemaker, was portrayed by actor Guy Pearce in the original Australian movie, released in 1994. The new role marks a return to the stage for the 2AM star, who last year played the part of Herod in the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar”.
