TONITE: Justice May Be Blind But She Is Not Deaf

gonzalescantata_color_1.jpg

The Gonzales Contata, a Philly Fringe show by composer Melissa Dunphy that will run this weekend, is a choral work with libretto taken directly from the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings of former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Buzz about the show has gone viral with write ups in The Wall Street Journal and Huffington Post and earlier this week Rachel Maddow devoted an entire segment to the production on The Rachel Madow Show. Kudos for making the show’s official website a dead-on parody of the Drudge Report.  (Show times and venue info after the jump)
