Peter Quilter, one of the most successful and popular comedy playwrights of the current international theatre stage has got a perfect sense to pick up curious and bizarre life stories. This is also the case of the story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst singer in the world that has been entertaining visitors in dozens of sold-out theatres in the world. A bad singer of famous opera arias, but so enthusiastic, that she was able to get the famous Carnegie Hall to be sold-out for her. “People may say I cannot sing, but they cannot say I did not sing …”
