WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A.C.T. welcomes the return of the remarkable Judy Kaye (A.C.T.'s Sweeney Todd) in the daring Broadway role that earned her a 2006 Tony Award nomination. A fresh, original musical adventure, Souvenir imagines the story of real-life Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York socialite and tone-deaf diva who thought she was a great soprano. In truth, she squawked like a deranged rooster. Her brilliant, wry accompanist chronicles Florence's unlikely rise to cult status, which culminated in an infamous sold-out Carnegie Hall performance. A heartfelt, wickedly funny look at the limits of self-perception and the unpredictable nature of friendship.
