New York City
This bittersweet comedy with music follows the career of Florence Foster Jenkins, classical music’s most notoriously bad singer. In 1932, Jenkins was a wealthy tone-deaf widow whose passion was singing. Nothing could stand in her way of becoming a famous coloratura soprano, least of all her obvious lack of talent. Her pianist Cosme McMoon, equally hapless though more aware of the fact, tells the story of a fascinating woman who shockingly sold out Carnegie Hall. Starring Tony Award-winner Judy Kaye.
