In 1940’s New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see was Florence Foster Jenkins, a joyous and enthusiastic soprano whose deplorable lack of pitch and tone left her audiences falling about with laughter. Known as ‘the worst singer in the world’, she warbles and screeches through charity recitals, extravagant balls, bizarre recording sessions, and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall. A hilarious and heart-warming comedy showcased in the 2016 film Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep.

Audience Talk-Backs TBD.

This is a stage adaptation of the movie about a 19 year-old boy who finally learns how to truly live when he meets that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude. Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid—his alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him and what captivates us. This stage version, a hit in France directed by the internationally renowned Jean Louis Barrault, will certainly delight both aficionados of the film and new comers to the story.

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Ahrens and Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including The Cat in the Hat; Horton, the elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing the Whos, vowing to protect them from naysayers and dangers; the irresponsible and lazy Mayzie; the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz; and Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” These colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Seussical is fun for the whole family!
