A quick look at Victory for Victoria

Russ Bickerstaff, of the Shepherd Express, was kind enough to take a little look into Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of Victory for Victoria!

“One of the largely unsung figures in US history gets a closer look this month thanks to Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of the original musical Victory for Victoria. From obscurity to prominence, the show sounds like a fascinating biography. The book is by Susan Peterson Holmes with music by Alissa Rhode and lyrics by Peggy Peterson Ryan. Emerging talent Allie Babich is given a fascinating challenge in portraying a character as complex as Woodhull. She’s got plenty of charisma to shine into a very charismatic figure from the margins of US history.

Victory for Victoria runs Oct. 27 – 30 at the Wauwatosa Woman’s Club on 1626 Wauwatosa Avenue.”
