Announcing Theater Company of Lafayette’s 2015 Season
Victor/Victoria by Blake Edwards: March 6 – 28
Directed by Artemus Martin, Music direction by Howard Smith
Victoria Grant, a down-and-out British soprano, struggles to find work in the nightclubs of 1930s Paris. Grant meets cabaret performer Toddy, who comes up with an idea that will change everything. Acting as her manager, Toddy bills Grant as a male female impersonator. When the nightclubs eat it up, the duo makes it big — even a Chicago mobster is enamored with Grant. But keeping the truth a secret is no easy task.
