Lyric Stage Company will present Stephen Temperley's Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins this fall, running October 20-November 19. Spiro Veloudos, the company's artistic director, will stage the production.

Souvenir is an affectionate portrait of Florence Foster Jenkins, one of the finest coloratura sopranos in history — but, only in her own mind! Her concerts, including a legendary appearance at Carnegie Hall, were not only sold-out but were attended by the crème de la crème of Manhattan society.

The production stars Leigh Barrett as Florence Foster Jenkins and Will McGarrahan as Cosmé McMoon. Scenic design is by Charles "Skip" Curtiss, with costumes by Gail Astrid Buckley, lighting by Chris Hudacs, and sound by David Wilson.
