A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins
By Stephen Temperley
Directed by Jack Laufer
Starring Alan Altshuld and Erika Nadir* (A Doll’s House, Pt. 2)
It's time to believe again in the power of music! Souvenir is the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric, wealthy socialite, who believes she is an enchanting coloratura soprano and 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, festooned in fabulous costumes, and becomes a sensation! Unfortunately, Mrs. Jenkins can't sing. But there’s more than one way to get to Carnegie Hall! This tuneful comedy beguiles the hopeful artist that lives in us all. Southwest Missouri premiere.
