Victor/Victoria  Sarofim Hall - Hobby Center

I am not a big fan of theatre, but a buddy of mine is yet I have not asked him about Victor/Victoria, oh did I just mentioned I'm not a big theatre fan. Perhaps that's why our conversations about theatre never comes up. He brings up theatre and how in hight school he performed in "Grease". He tells me its how he met his high school sweethearth, years later she would  dump him.

Let me get back to

Victor/Victoriaopening soon at the Hobby Center and what I have learned about this play.

Here is the story: A penniless soprano, named Victoria, colludes with a struggling gay impresario to  disguise herself as a man named Victor, who entertains as a female mpersonator known as "Victoria", the result Victoria becomes the toast of Paris. Complications arise when a Chicago mobster sees the act and finds himself attracted to the star.
     The whole farce is based on the 1982 film of the same name which was a remake of the German film comedy Viktor und Viktoria shot by Reinhold Schünzel in 1933 from his own script.
