Events ArtisTree's Music Theatre Festival presents: SOUVENIR
SOUVENIR: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins
Dubbed by her critics as the "Dire Diva of Din," passionate music lover and wealthy socialite, Florence Foster Jenkins enjoyed a remarkably successful concert career even though she was unburdened by talent and deliriously tone deaf.
Her story is told through the eyes of her pianist, Cosme McMoon. A truly talented musician, he regards her at first as a little more than an easy way to pay the rent, but his initial contempt gives way to reluctant admiration, then friendship and a unique kind of love.
