Marvel at the Glorious and Infamous Florence Foster Jenkins
Don’t miss the chance to see Glorious! The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins. This hilarious comedy tells the life story of the worst singer in the world, from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall. It’s the show everyone is talking about, performing now at Theatre in the Park!
In 1940's New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale,' she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics; instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based upon a true story, the play spins through a hilarious and heart-warming comedy, leaving you tickled and inspired by such an interesting character!
At Village at Broadstone Station Apartments in Apex, North Carolina, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
