Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins
Tickets and Information
Opened Jul 5, 2008
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This comedy explores the poignant and true story of the musical career of Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy New York society eccentric of the 30's and 40's. Told in flashback, from the point of view of her long-time accompanist, Stephen Temperley's comedy Souvenir is an affectionate salute to the fascinating story of a unique artist who suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano. Unfortunately, she had no ear for pitch and those in her circle of friends, mostly out of politeness, would compliment her voice to the point where she decided to hold small recitals for charity. The cult status of her regrettable singing spread through New York, culminating in a smash hit record and a sold-out Carnegie Hall solo concert.
