Victor/Victoria is a 1995 American videotaped television production of the Broadway musical of the same name written and directed by Blake Edwards, starring Julie Andrews, Tony Roberts, Michael Nouri, Rachel York, Richard B. Shull and Gregory Jbara. The play's opening night performance on October 25, 1995 at the Marquis Theatre in New York City was filmed exclusively for Japanese television broadcast by NHK on December 23, 1995. It was directed for the stage by Edwards and directed for television by Matthew Diamond and Goro Kobayashi.


Victoria (Andrews) is a penniless out-of-work singer whose life is changed when she meets the flamboyant gay impresario Toddy (Roberts) and, 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 (Nouri), a macho Chicago gangster – who sees the act and finds himself attracted to the star.
