This play was fantastic start to finish. These two amazingly talented actors made this one of the best plays I have seen. The show is hilarious and touching.

Description

The remarkable Judy Kaye (Sweeney Todd) returns to A.C.T. in the outrageous Broadway role that earned her a Tony Award nomination. A fresh, original adventure, Souvenir imagines the story of real-life Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York socialite and tone-deaf diva who thought she was a great soprano. Broadway’s brilliant Donald Corren plays her wry accompanist, who chronicles Florence’s unlikely rise to cult status, culminating in an infamous sold-out Carnegie Hall performance. A heartfelt, wickedly funny look at the limits of self-perception and the unpredictable nature of friendship.
