Glorious!

by Peter Quilter

Directed by: Jan Darnbrough


Based on a true story, Peter Quilter’s comedy “Glorious!” invites us into the world of Florence Foster Jenkins (1868-1944), a gregarious soprano who in the early 1940s became the must-see artist in New York. Spinning from charity recitals before groups of devoted friends to extravagant balls, Florence’s enthusiasm and joy more than made up for her imperfect pitch. Paying little attention to her critics, the ‘first lady of the sliding scale’ resolutely restricted her professional performances to an annual recital, yet her unconventional career culminated in a triumphant sell-out concert at Carnegie Hall, New York, shortly before her death.
