Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins

  • Where: stream or MCT Center for the Performing Arts 200 N Adams Missoula, Montana

It's time to laugh again with the Missoula Community Theatre! Stream this musical comedy from home or see SOUVENIR in-person at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts! Florence Foster Jenkins was a real-life toast of the opera world in the 1930’s and 1940’s, selling out concert halls and eventually performing at Carnegie Hall. An astounding feat, but even more incredible given that she was completely and painfully tone deaf. What was it that drew audiences to her and brought them joy? Were they laughing at her or with her? Told through the eyes of Cosmé McMoon, an accomplished pianist, SOUVENIR is both heart-breaking and hilarious. Though not promoted as a family show, children ages 10 and older should enjoy the physical comedy aspect, much like the way Victor Borge delighted audiences for years with his antics at the piano.
