Photo Flash: First Look at SOUVENIR at Bridge Street Theatre

On October 25, 1944, wealthy (and tone-deaf) soprano Florence Foster Jenkins and her accompanist Cosme McMoon performed a recital at Carnegie Hall. Tickets sold out weeks in advance; an estimated 2,000 people were turned away at the door. The world of music has never quite recovered. Come share the hilarious and touching tale of this unlikely pair in the musical "Souvenir" at Catskill's Bridge Street Theatre March 16th through the 26th. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Appearing in the cast of this co-production between Bridge Street Theatre and Fort Salem Theater (who will present the production in Salem, NY this July) are soprano Alison Davy as Florence Foster Jenkins and pianist Jay Kerr as Cosme McMoon. The musical production is directed by Flo Hayle and designed by John Sowle (Sets & Lights), Carmen Borgia (Sound) and Kaitlyn Day (Costumes).

"Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins" will be presented on the Bridge Street Theatre Mainstage for 8 performances only - Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm from March 16-26.

The Thursday March 16 preview and the Sunday March 19 matinee are "Pay-What-You-Can" performances. Advance tickets are available for $22, $10 for Students age 21 and under, at BrownPaperTickets.com or by calling 800-838-3006. Tickets can also be purchased at the door prior to each performance (on a space available basis) for $25, $10 for Students age 21 and under.
