What's Happening in Wayne County?

Souvenir - a Visionary Production at Richmond Civic Theatre

Murray Theatre, home to Richmond Civic TheatreFor 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. As news of her terrible singing spread, so did her celebrity. Her growing mob of fans packed her recitals, stuffing handkerchiefs in their mouths to stifle their laughter—which Mrs. Jenkins blissfully mistook for cheers. 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 through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. 7:30 p.m. on January 19th and 20th. Tickets are $15/person. A Visionary Production at Richmond Civic Theatre, 1003 East Main Street, Richmond. For more information, call 765.962.1816.
