Frostburg State University Theatre will present the musical “Victor/Victoria” on Oct. 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m., and again Oct. 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m., with matinee performances on Oct. 11 and 18 at 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Drama Theater.
Adapted from the musical film’s success, “Victor/Victoria” opened on Broadway in 1995 with Julie Andrews in the title role of a nearly-starved singer in 1930s Paris, where males impersonating females were all the rage on stage. Desperate for a job, Victoria Grant disguises herself as a man who then impersonates a woman and becomes a singing sensation. All is well until she falls madly in love with a powerful gangster who is equally “disturbed” by his attraction to this apparent female impersonator. With musical number like “Le Jazz Hot,” “You and Me,” “Almost a Love Song,” “Living in the Shadows” and “Crazy World,” “Victor/Victoria” is gender-bending at its comic best.
