The show is based on a 1933 German film.
Victor/Victoria is a witty, comic romp examining questions of gender, identity, and love, set in Paris in the 1930s.
English soprano Victoria Grant finds herself at a nightclub, without work or money. She meets Carroll Todd, or "Toddy," a performer at the club who gets fired while trying to help her.
The two soon team up and embark on an unlikely (and surprisingly successful) scheme. With Toddy's help, Victoria becomes "Count Victor Grazinski" - a renowned female impersonator.
The twist is of course that she is a woman, claiming to be a man, claiming to be a woman. Things get even crazier when sparks begin to fly between Victoria and a notorious Chicago businessman, King Marchan, and he sets out to uncover "the Count's" secret.
The show is based on a 1933 German film, written by Reinhold Schünzel and titled Viktor und Viktoria.
The story was reworked as a musical film in 1982. The film starred Julie Andrews and had a script by Blake Edwards (who also directed) and Hans Hoemburg, music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
Victor/Victoria plays from September 11 - 28, 2019 at the Moonlight Amphitheatre.
