Victor Victoria - Blu-Ray DVD - Julie Andrews - 1995 Broadway Production
Composer: Henry Mancini
Lyricist: Leslie Briscuse
One of the world's best-loved performers, Julie Andrews reaches new heights in her most challenging role as a woman pretending to be a man impersonating a woman! Filmed on the Broadway stage, VICTOR/VICTORIA is a warm, funny, wildly energetic look at the nature of love, gender perceptions and the battle of the sexes. Written and directed by Blake Edwards, with an unforgettable score by Henry Mancini and Leslie Bricusse, VICTOR/VICTORIA tells the story of an out-of-work singer whose life changes when she meets the flamboyant Toddy. With his help, she becomes "Victor," an overnight singing sensation in the nightclubs of Paris. But success becomes hilariously complicated when she meets the love of her life, King Marchan, a macho Chicago gangster. From the electrifying excitement of "Le Jazz Hot" to the contemplative "Crazy World," from the humor of "Chicago, Illinois" to the touching "Almost a Love Song," this classic musical has it all.
