Glorious By Peter Quilter

Point Loma Playhouse proudly presents Glorious! The true story of Florence Jenkins, the worst singer in the world!

Glorious! by Peter Quilter - In New York in the 1940s, the performer whom 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. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, comfortably surrounded by devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Glorious!, a sparkling comedy based on the true story of the astronomical success of the worst singer in the world opens the Point Loma Playhouses’ new season. The play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in a hilarious and heartwarming comedy.

Cast: Pati Reynolds, Robert Nickel, Raymond Lynch, Bobbi Randall, Gabriela Sosa, Maxine Levarena and Dena Mattox. Directed by Pati Reynolds.

Date | Glorious! will be showing on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and on Sundays at 3p.m. from September 17 through October 9.
