May 30 - June 16 Eccentric Manhattan socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once declared, “People may say I can’t sing, but no one can ever say I didn’t sing.” And oh, did she sing — often and loudly, but rarely on-key. Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Time Out calls Souvenir “a memorable illustration of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold.” Now a movie starring Meryl Streep, this charming and hilarious musical comedy reminds us that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
