Souvenir
Florence Foster Jenkins was an eccentric wealthy socialite whose utter inability to carry a tune never prevented her from holding recitals at the Ritz Carlton or selling out Carnegie Hall. Told through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon, Stephen Temperley's hilariously off-key Souvenir has been called "the funniest show on Broadway since The Producers." It's a wonderful and poignant journey through her performances that were the talk of New York. Tome' Cousin directs.

Newberry Consort - Rosas das Rosas: Cantigas de Santa Maria
