Glorious! The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the Worst Singer in the World
Play by Peter Quilter, directed by Billie Cox.
The First Lady of the Sliding Scale, Florence Foster Jenkins is the hottest ticket in town, and not for the reasons you'd think. An enthusiastic soprano with less than perfect pitch, she warbles and screeches her way through arias by Mozart and Strauss, accompanied by her trusty pianist. But this delusional and joyously happy woman pays little attention to her critics, and instead surrounds herself with devoted friends and fans nearly as eccentric as herself.
Based upon a true story, the play follows plucky Florence through charity recitals, balls, bizarre recording sessions, and ultimately to her triumphant performance at Carnegie Hall. Take a journey with Florence and her pianist Cosme McMoon to rediscover the definition of passion!
"Delightful and often blissfully funny, this is a cult hit if I ever saw one." Daily Telegraph
