Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy society eccentric of the '30s and '40s, believed she had a great singing voice -- and she couldn't have been more wrong. Yet her laugh-provoking musical career culminated in a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. The gifted Judy Kaye plays the tone-deaf Jenkins, and Donald Corren plays her accompanist, Cosme McMoon, in this new musical written by Stephen Temperley and directed by Vivian Matalon.

Lyceum Theatre, 149 W. 45th St., (212) 239-6200. Previews Oct. 28. Opens Nov. 10.
