The first lady of the sliding scale
In the 1940s the singer everyone wanted to see perform live in New York was the enthusiastic soprano Florence Foster Jenkins – 'the first lady of the sliding scale'. Surrounding herself by devoted friends, almost as eccentric as she, this deliciously happy and delusional woman paid scant attention to her critics and would screech and warble to her audiences, most falling about with laughter.
A delightful and blissfully funny play that generates a rare glow of warmth and generous laughter.
A lunatically funny play that will keep you very happy … A glittering comedy with a heart.
Outstandingly droll and surprisingly touching.
