Lyceum Theatre ~ Souvenir

Souvenir

August 18 – 26

A Lyceum Premiere! New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once said, “People may say I can’t sing, but no one can ever say I didn’t sing.” But this wealthy eccentric was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. An improbable fandom flocked to see her as she performed her Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Her story was recently told in an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep, and now she appears on the Lyceum stage with her hapless accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that you can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.
