VICTOR/VICTORIA (1982): Oscar nominee Lesley Ann Warren joins us to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this beloved musical comedy that throws all expectations of gender and sexuality out the window. Impoverished soprano Victoria (Julie Andrews) becomes the toast of Paris when her gay pal Toddy (Robert Preston) transforms her into female impersonator "Count Victor Grazinski." But when Chicago gangster King Marchand (James Garner) falls for the Count, he sends the lives of his girlfriend Norma (Warren) and his bodyguard Squash (Alex Karras) into a hilarious tailspin. Nominated for seven Academy Awards (including a win for Henry Mancini and Leslie Bricusse's unforgettable song score), VICTOR/VICTORIA is an outrageous, tune-filled farce for the ages. Lesley Ann Warren Q&A to follow (schedule permitting). Scr. Blake Edwards (based on the 1933 film VIKTOR UND VIKTORIA); dir. Blake Edwards. 132 minutes.
