This Fri-Sun list of what to do and where to do it is brought to you by Rockland Center for the Arts.


“What matters most is the music you hear in your head,” said Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy socialite and real-life figure in Penguin Rep Theatre’s new play Souvenir. Foster Jenkins’s story is affectionately told through the eyes of her longtime accompanist Cosme McMoon.
