SOUVENIR: A FANTASIA ON THE LIFE OF FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS
A MUSICAL ODD COUPLE FOR THE AGES
For more than half a century the name Florence Foster Jenkins has been guaranteed to produce explosions of laughter. This wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when in face she was incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Souvenir tells her story through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Eyewitness accounts of their concerts vary so wildly it is almost impossible to separate fact from gossip. This fictional biography follows the story of their partnership from its earliest days to their infamous concert in Carnegie Hall and its aftermath.
