Fall in love with this fresh and original comedy, Souvenir: A Fantasia on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins.  Florence Foster Jenkins (Susan Perrin-Sallak) was a New York socialite and tone-deaf diva who believed she was a great coloratura. The improbably named Cosme McMoon (Bryan Tank) was her accompanist. He chronicles Florence's musical journey from drawing room concerts to recordings to Carnegie Hall. Souvenir is a touching and comic tribute to Ms. Jenkins' sincerity, ambition, and deep love of music coupled with a complete lack of talent. Souvenir is for anyone who has ever dreamed a dream.
