The Crimson Tine Players are putting on Glorious

Witty play based on true story comes to Princeton

Glorious is a true story of a legendary New York socialite who wanted to be a great operatic diva despite having a horrible voice.

The Crimson Tine Players are putting on comedic play Glorious, a true story of a legendary New York heiress and socialite who wanted to be a great operatic diva despite having one of the worst singing voices in history.

The play is at the Riverside Theatre on June 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and June 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.

Socialite Florence Foster Jenkins uses all her money, charm and unstoppable will-power to make her singing career happen.

Who would believe this flamboyant, energetic lady would dare to perform for her many womens clubs when she was laughed at, mocked and made fun of? She was a truly wonderful person who lived life to the fullest, regardless of what people thought.

The soprano voice she heard in her head is beautiful, and it never occurs to her this is not the sound coming from her mouth.

The characters are played by Esther Donovan (Florence), Josh Herzog (Cosme), Britt Fraser (St. Clair), Rhianfa Riel (Dorothy) and Carla Friesen (Marie and Verrinder Gedge).

The play, written by Peter Quilter, was nominated for a Lawrence Olivier Award in 2006 for best new comedy.

Tickets are available at the Sunflower Art Gallery and Shopper Drug Mart and at the door for $15 (adults) and $12 (kids). Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show and it’s general seating.
