Production Description

Casting "Souvenir." This play is a reinterpretation of the life story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the real life woman famous for trying to be an opera star and failing badly. She is completely tone deaf, but she is convinced that she can sing. Using her own droves of money, she hires an accompanist, Cosme McMoon, the narrator of the play, and designs her own extremely florid dresses. McMoon needs money, and thus he is willing to play for a woman who cannot sing to save her life.
