“Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins”
September 5, 2019 - September 22, 2019$40
Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, presents Stephen Temperley’s stunning play, “Souvenir,” which tells the story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a famous society eccentric who suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano. Her “singing” career culminated in a single 1944 Carnegie Hall concert. Hilarious and poignant, “Souvenir” is told through the eyes of Foster’s accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Runs September 5–22. Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center.
A post-show discussion will be held following the performances on September 8, 13 and 20.
A pre-show lecture will be held at 12:30pm on September 21, in advance of the 2pm performance.
The performance on September 15 will be Sign Language Interpreted.
