Glorious by Peter Quilter

Glorious by Peter QuilterPoint Loma Playhouse Proudly Presents Glorious! The True Story of Florence Jenkins The Worst Singer in the World



Glorious! A sparkling comedy based on the true story of the astronomical success of the worst singer in the world opens the Point Loma Playhouse’ 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.

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.
