WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Souvenir is a sweet and hilarious fantasia on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, the passionate but self-deceiving music lover. Jenkins was one of the finest coloratura sopranos in history — but alas, only in her own mind! Despite being called "majestically awful," her concerts in the 1930s and '40s were not only sold-out but attended by the crème de la crème of Manhattan society. Souvenir is the story of a woman who believed that "what matters most is the music you hear in your head."
