Glorious!: The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the Worst Singer in the World (Iron Bridge Theatre Group)

  • Boal Barn Playhouse (map)

The Iron Bridge Theatre group comes to the Boal Barn Playhouse in Boalsburg to present the hilarious comedy “Glorious: The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the Worst Singer in the World.” In 1940’s New York city, 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. Based upon a true story, the play spins for Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and hear’warming comedy.

This is a special preview performance for the SLSG! No tickets are required, but you must reserve your spot Please reserve the A-D service with the SLSG office (814-238-238-0132 or office@slsg.org) by September 3rd.
