Victor/Victoria – The Bridewell Theatre – Preview

Daniel Wren

The City of London’s Sedos theatre company are staging their own version of the Julie Andrews classic Victor/Victoria at The Bridewell Theatre.

The musical comedy – originally a 1982 film which was nominated for seven Academy Awards, and won the Oscar for Best Original Music Score – was adapted in 1995 for Broadway. Andrews reprised her role and was nominated for a Tony. Sedos’ staging brings the show to The Bridewell Theatre.

The story predates Connie & Carla as a tale of a woman who poses as a drag queen to get a job. The setting is 1930s Paris, where Victoria Grant pretends to be ‘Victor’, and unexpectedly falls in love with a local gangster.


Book by Blake Edwards, music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, additional Music by Frank Wildhorn.

The show runs 26 November-6 December 2014
