VICTOR VICTORIA
THURSDAY-SUNDAYS, JUNE THROUGH JULY 30

BRÜKA THEATRE – 99 N. VIRGINIA ST., DOWNTOWN RENO
Now playing at Brüka Theatre… Victor Victoria!   This magical, musical comedy takes place in Paris, 1934, and tells an entertaining story of mistaken identity, sexual roleplaying, love, innocence and sight gags.  When refined British soprano Victoria Grant finds herself down on her luck in Paris, she discovers to her dismay, that producers and nightclub owners are looking for a sound that is much less “legitimate” than hers. On the brink of starvation, she is rescued by Toddy, a warm, generous, and flamboyant nightclub singer, who springs a brilliant idea… dress Victoria as a man, and pass her off as a female impersonator, where she will delight the whole of “Gay Paree” with her eerie gender‐bending and astonishing vocal range.  Check out the show Thursdays through Sundays through July 27, learn more and purchase tickets at Bruka.org.
