Souvenir Saturday Matinee

October 17 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Saturday, repeating until November 7, 2020


Due to our reduced capacity, we’ve added Saturday matinees (1:30 pm) for Souvenir to encourage social distancing? PLUS – guests at our Saturday matinees get a BRUNCH BOX (included in your ticket) which includes mini quiche, mini blueberry muffins, and a mini parfait, and can enjoy half-priced mimosas, Bloody Mary, and Screwdrivers before the show in our Events Center.

Souvenir tells the enchanting and hilarious true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy society eccentric who suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, her annual recitals in the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton hotel brought her extraordinary fame. Her growing mob of fans packed her recitals, stuffing handkerchiefs in their mouths to stifle their laughter—which Mrs. Jenkins blissfully mistook for cheers. Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells her story through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosmé McMoon. With each new imagined triumph Florence’s confidence soars. Faced with her boundless certainty, Cosmé comes to revise his attitude, not only towards her singing but to the very meaning of music itself.
