About This Show

It’s time to believe again in the power of music! Souvenir is the true story of one of opera’s most unforgettable stars. Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric and wealthy socialite, believes she is an enchanting coloratura soprano, and she wants to share her talent with the world. After teaming up with a new pianist, Cosmé McMoon, she begins to hold recitals at the Ritz Carlton, festooned in fabulous costumes. She becomes a sensation! Unfortunately, the truth is Mrs. Jenkins can’t sing. But there’s more than one way to get to Carnegie Hall…

Based on a true story, this tuneful comedy beguiles the hopeful artist that lives in us all.
