Patti Cohenour to Star in San Jose Rep's Souvenir

Patti Cohenour
Broadway veteran Patti Cohenour will play tin-eared opera diva Florence Foster Jenkins in San Jose Rep's production of Stephen Temperley's Souvenir, March 26-April 20. The production will be directed by R. Hamilton Wright and will co-star Mark Anders as Jenkins' long-suffering accompanist, Cosme McMoon.

The creative team includes Edie Whitsett (sets), Marcia Dixcy Jory (costumes), Rick Paulsen (lighting), and Steve Schoenbeck (sound). Wright directed last year's production of Souvenir, also starring Cohenour and Anders, at Seattle's A.C.T.

Cohenour starred on Broadway as Signora Naccarelli and Margaret Johnson in The Light in the Piazza. Her other Broadway credits include Big River, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Sound of Music. Anders has been seen in such productions as Dirty Blonde and Old Wicked Songs.
