A heart-warming play for music-lovers and those who are tone-deaf alike

Glorious! is based on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, the legendary New York heiress and socialite who wanted to be a great operatic diva despite having one of the worst singing voices in history, and who used all her money, charm and unstoppable willpower to make it happen. The soprano voice she heard in her head was beautiful and pure and it never occurred to her that this was not the sound issuing from her mouth.

The play opens in 1940s New York in Madame Jenkins’ apartment which she shares with her overtly English actor companion St Clair. She finds a young budding pianist, Cosme McMoon, who has no idea what treats are in store for him. Toss in a Mexican maid who doesn’t speak English (and of course Madame Jenkins speaks not a word of Spanish), a ditzy companion Dorothy, and her dog Ricky, and follow their delightfully charming (and ever so amusing) exploits which culminate in a show-stopping, sell-out concert at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. This is a heart-warming play for all: music lovers and those who are tone-deaf alike. It won’t be over till the tone-deaf lady sings… and you may not even want her to stop!

This show is part of our 2017/18 season.
