Victor/Victoria

Book by BLAKE EDWARDS
Music by HENRY MANCINI
Lyrics by LESLIE BRICUSSE

New York run: Marquis Theatre, October 25, 1995-July 27, 1997

 

Plot Synopsis

"Victor/Victoria tells the story of an out-of-work singer whose life changes when she meets the flamboyant Toddy. With his help, she becomes 'Victor,' an overnight singing sensation in the nightclubs of Paris. But success becomes hilariously complicated when she meets the love of her life, King Marchand, a macho Chicago gangster. Adding her two cents to the couple's troubles is Marchand's ex-girlfriend, the ditzy Norma Cassidy. From the electrifying excitement of 'Le Jazz Hot' to the contemplative 'Crazy World', from the humor of 'Chicago, Illinois' to the touching 'Almost a Love Song,' this truly classic musical has it all."
