About the show
The true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst singer in the world
In New York in the 1940s, everyone wanted to see 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.
This delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, comfortably surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was.
Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in a hilarious and heart-warming comedy.
