Glorious theatre this month at the Whitehorse Centre

12 Apr 2018

The hilarious true story of the world’s worst opera singer, Florence Foster Jenkins, is a not-to-be-missed show on this month at the Whitehorse Centre.

Whitehorse Councillor Andrew Munroe said Glorious! was set in the 1940s and told of the singer everyone wanted to see perform, but not for her startling talent.

“The enthusiastic but deluded Florence turned appalling opera singing into an art form. Thanks to her, we now have this wonderful show at the Whitehorse Centre starring the magnificent Diana McLean in the lead,” Cr Munroe said.

The deliciously happy Florence paid scant attention to her critics and would screech and warble to her audiences, most falling about with laughter.

This heart-warming comedy moves from Florence’s charity recitals and lavish balls, through to her very odd recording sessions and her ultimate performance triumph at New York’s Carnegie Hall.

Glorious! is the West End and world-wide hit that was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and has been seen by more than two million people across six continents.
