Judson Theatre Company Announces SOUVENIR and WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION
Judson Theatre Company has announced their Eighth Season: Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins by Stephen Temperley and Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution. Souvenir opens Thursday, May 9, 2019 and runs through Sunday, May 12. Witness for the Prosecution opens Thursday, November 21 and runs through Sunday, November 24.
Stephen Temperley's Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of one of opera's most unforgettable stars. Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric and wealthy New York socialite, believes she is an enchanting coloratura soprano and she wants to share her talent with the world. After teaming up with a new pianist, Cosmé McMoon, she begins to hold recitals at the Ritz Carlton. Festooned in fabulous costumes, she becomes a sensation. Unfortunately, the truth is Mrs. Jenkins can't really sing...but there's more than one way to get to Carnegie Hall! Souvenir is the tuneful comedy that beguiles the hopeful artist who lives in us all.
After a successful off-Broadway run in 2004, Souvenir opened on Broadway in 2005 starring Judy Kaye, and has been constantly produced in theatres worldwide ever since. Ms. Jenkins' life story was adapted for the screen in the film Florence Foster Jenkins with Meryl Street and Hugh Grant.
