[BKARTS] What is Good Art?



"Souvenir," a recent Broadway show by Stephen Temperley at the Lyceum Theater 
was about Florence Foster Jenkins (1868-1944) who became a legend for her 
Awful voice. She believed with all her heart that she could sing...opera!

She rented out and performed to larger and larger audiences at Town Hall, and 
made her way to Carnegie, where she filled the house, absolutely refusing to 
accept the limitations of her artistic abilities. 

Most likely she was tone deaf.
