The limited run of Zebra Crossing's Asian premiere of hit Broadway musical VICTOR/VICTORIA at the Esplanade Theatre in Singapore will end on November 29, 2009. The show stars international jazz songstress Laura Fygi as Victor/Victoria, and Philippine theatre's favorite leading man Jake Macapagal as King Marchan.

"Victor/Victoria," the 1982 musical comedy film was a remake of "Victor und Viktoria" penned by German screenplay writer Hans Hoemburg, and directed by Reinhold Schunzel in 1933.  The film starred Julie Andrews as Victor/Victoria, James Garner, Robert Preston, Lesley Ann Warren, Alex Karras, and John Rhys-Davies.

It was later adapted into a Broadway musical in 1995, which also starred Julie Andrews. Mancini and Frank Wildhorn wrote the music with book by Blake Edwards and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

VICTOR/VICTORIA in Singapore is directed by Loretta Chen, and produced by Felina Khong.
