Based on the film by Blake Edwards and the 1933 German film Viktor und Viktoria

A woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman?! Itís a piece of cake for out-of-work soprano Victoria Grant in this hillarious, fun-filled romp through 1930s Paris. Based on the side-splitting seven-time Oscar-nominated Blake Edwards film and backed by an exhilarating Academy Awardģ-winning score by the great Henry Mancini, Victor/Victoria is a warm and wildly energetic look at gender perceptions as seen through the eternal battle of the sexes. The classic film comes to the stage with a set of show-stopping numbers that range from the electrifying ďLe Jazz Hot,Ē to the heart-rending ďAlmost a Love Song,Ē and ďCrazy World.Ē A comical and touching celebration of the many facets of love, Victor/Victoria has it all! Performed at The Robert G. Reim Theatre in Kirkwood (111 S. Geyer Rd.).
