Set in Greenwich Village, this musical flashes back to the career of opera singer Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy socialite with a famously uncertain sense of pitch who is under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. She uses her own wealth to produce off-key recitals that become the talk of New York, earning her cultish fame, and culminating in a sold-out performance in Carnegie Hall. This hilarious and poignant musical is sure to keep you entertained.
