Florence Foster Jenkins is one of those strange and delightful characters from history —a wealthy eccentric who doggedly pursued a singing career in spite of the fact that she was horribly tone deaf.
This play follows Florence to her career-defining performance at a sold-out Carnegie Hall in 1944.
With only two characters and some delightful music, appropriately slaughtered, Souvenir promises to be a hilarious and powerful look at an oddly inspiring figure, who once said: "People may say I couldn't sing, but no one can ever say I didn't sing."
7:30 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays; through May 21, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, 30 W. Dale St., $18-$20, csfineartscenter.org.
