Further complications ensue, of course, when Victoria falls for club owner and heterosexual King Marchand. With a running time of about two and a half hours, the Broadway musical doesn’t vary too much from the much-loved 1995 Julie Andrews film, says Sheldon, who was last seen in Houston in last season’s TUTS production of Camelot. Australian by birth, Sheldon relocated to the United States after his success in Priscilla and since then has found steady work in New York and across the country. He says the show probably isn’t performed often because of its large cast. People should see it, he says, because of its dance numbers and lavish costumes. And for the wonderful music. “It was Henry Mancini’s last show before he died. It’s a good, old-fashioned comedy musical.”
