BROADWAY SMASH "VICTOR/VICTORIA" HITS VITERBO STAGE MAR. 1
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Broadway smash musical "Victor/Victoria," dresses up the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Wednesday, Mar. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Set in Paris in the 1930s, "Victor/Victoria" is the story of Victoria Grant, a beautiful singer who has fallen on hard times. In order to pay the rent, she is persuaded to perform at the city’s finest cabaret as Count Victor Grazinsky, the female impersonator. Victoria—or is it Victor?—is a huge success. She’s got glitz and he’s got style. But complications and comedy ensue when Victoria falls in love with a mobster with a heart. Can she win the man of her dreams while masquerading as Victor?
Based on the 1982 motion picture, "Victor/Victoria" was written by writer/producer/director Blake Edwards who is known for numerous films including the Pink Panther series. "Victor/Victoria" received seven Academy Awards and won for best musical score. It opened on Broadway in October 1995 starring Julie Andrews.
The show is directed by Mark S. Howebee and choreographed by Dan Mojica. Its musical score was composed by the late Henry Mancini, with lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and additional musical material by Frank Wildhorn.
