 Souvenir
Friday, September 8, 2017 through Monday, November 5, 2018. 7:30 pm.

Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.
