Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins

By Stephen Temperley

For more than half a century, the name Florence Foster Jenkins has been guaranteed to produce explosions of derisive laughter. Not unreasonably so, as this wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, she received extraordinary fame, and the climax of her career was a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. Famously, it sold out in two hours. Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells her story.

“A beguiling comic jewel with a heart.” -Variety
“A wildly funny and surprisingly touching portrait.” -Time Out NY
